Cannons Creek CAT students disassemble desktop computers
Grade 10 CAT Students had fun taking two computers apart to identify hardware components.
A computer is made up of different components like the motherboard, processor, display, RAM, etc.
Components identified and discussed: ∙ Motherboard - Heart of the Computer. Everything sits on/connects to motherboard ∙ CPU - Central Processing unit ∙ RAM - Random access memory ∙ Video Card ∙ Power Supply ∙ Hard Disk ∙ Optical Drive
This hands-on lesson forms part of their theory lesson on Extended Hardware Concepts.
