Build Your Own Computer Workshop

Learn how to build your own computer and take it home! A great Winter holidays gift, this workshop is designed for students age 12 through adult to take alone or in pairs. Students as young as 10 are welcome if accompanied by a participating adult. The price is per computer so there is no extra charge for a parent/child pair taking the class together (unless they want to build two computers).

Students will leave with knowledge of how computers work and how to build their own.  Students will learn:

  • PC hardware names and uses
  • Motherboard ports and what they mean
  • What static discharge is and why it’s important to avoid during builds
  • General PC building procedure
  • Operating system basics and how to install them
  • Basic networking in relation to the computer (Ethernet vs. WiFi)
  • Installing basic software

This workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, December 27, 10am-2pm. Pizza will be provided at no additional charge for all participants.

Register by December 1, 2023 to reserve your spot!
