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.
