Build Your Own Computer! (to take home!)

Presented by The Center for Gifted

Join us for a rousing adventure in computer technology!

Come ready for a challenge, and leave with the computer you will have built from scratch. You will not be working from a kit. You will take home a genuine, bona fide, Windows based quad core computer. Guided by a computer expert, work through the process at your own pace, from understanding and placing the parts, to installing the operating system. Your instructor will equip you with high-quality, privately purchased, versatile parts which you will be able to upgrade or change out on your own, anytime. (Monitor is NOT included).

Age requirements and conditions for 2nd graders through adults: Students entering 2nd-6th grades in the fall require at least one parent or grandparent to enroll and work with them. Students entering 7th12th grades and beyond, through adulthood, may enroll on their own. Multiple (up to 3) family members may enroll and work together for a single tuition and fee.

Parents of students who withdraw after that time may pick up their parts at the program site during the week following class; they also will need to purchase the operating system separately, since it will not have been downloaded during class.
