matthew_computer_640x480This four week course will walk students through the process of identifying PC components, drivers, and software. Students will learn the process of assembling these components, as well as some of the basic history behind their development and how they’ve changed over the years. In addition, students will learn how to fix common issues that occur with computers, and how a desktop computer is similar to a laptop, a phone, etc… No matter what level of knowledge students have coming in, they will leave with a functional set of skills to build, troubleshoot, and operate a PC. Inquire about our one on one PC building sessions after (or before) the class if you’re interested in having your child build a computer as well.
