Learn How Computers Work Inside!
Many years ago, computers were covered with
blinking lights and the people who used them could
see and understand how they worked inside.
Today those lights are gone - and unfortunately,
so is much of the understanding of the internal
workings. Your mission, as The Computer
Detective, is to
Recover that Understanding!
Students will learn to control the different
internal parts of one of the simplest possible
programmable computers. They will be able to see
for themselves how those parts work together as
a whole - right before their eyes!
The clearly-written 92-page instruction manual
takes the student, step by step, through
everything he needs to know to fully understand
and program a real computer! Maybe you don't
believe it can be that easy? Just check out the
first few pages of the manual for yourself:
