Learn To Build A Computer From Scratch

For Youth Aged 12 to 15

Wouldn’t it be cool to learn how to build a computer from scratch? Well, ERA created a brand new workshop for exactly that purpose. Parts to PC will give you hands-on experience disassembling and assembling a computer. You will also learn about what all of the pieces inside of a computer do and how to install them. The best part is there is no cost to participate!

From disassembled parts to a working machine, Parts to PC offers a full-circle approach that will conclude with powering on and testing the assembled finished product. Students will walk away from the experience with practical knowledge for troubleshooting hardware issues as well as a basic understanding of all of the elements working together inside of a computer. You never know, it could even be the first step toward building your own robot!

The two-hour workshop will be held at our Calgary depot, located at 1301 34 Ave SE, Calgary once a month from 10:15am to 12:15pm (pre-registration is mandatory). With class sizes restricted to eight participants, students will receive dedicated instruction on the hardware elements of common computers. Students will assemble a computer with the help of a qualified and knowledgeable instructor.
