A triage was formed, computers were gutted and parts moved around. Computer lingo began being bandied about; PC, DDR and DDR2 rams, LED fans, motherboards, hardrives, graphic cards, megabytes, gigabytes, kilobytes, terrabytes, CPU chips all became common words in our family vocabulary.
PC was able to give direction and help, but what has astounded me was how much our teens already knew and how quickly they have absorbed new information. It is impressive to see how successful they have been.
Only two weeks into the project they have already learnt so much. They have successfully salvaged two computers and are currently rebuilding and upgrading various parts within their own computers.
The learning curve is steep and rapid:)
