In this project, we will work in pairs to research the parts of a computer. This will create a collection of experts in the class. As we work on the computers, there will be resources in the room to turn to for information on ideas and challenges.


The initial product will be a website in which you explain what you have found about the topic. You will make a presentation to the class about the topic.
