For those of you who are curious about what we're going to focus on in the lab for the first little while; I've just put the finishing touches on the introductory units that we'll be working on during the first two months of school.
From kindergarten right on up to grade six, the focus is on microcomputer hardware. The bits of metal and plastic that make up the trusty machines that live in the lab, in our homes, and in businesses around the world. During first term, we'll sing songs, make models, watch videos, and have a great time learning about technology.
If you'd like a teeny preview of what's to come, check out this video (originally posted by a Youtuber called lipunkscene). It's a wonderful overview of the history of the computer that was made by a student. Honestly, I couldn't have said it better myself...
The original video can be found on Youtube.
