Summary:
Most computer users are familiar with terms such as chips, hard drives, and RAM, but what exactly is a chip and what does it do? What does a hard drive look like and how does it work? With helpful graphics and a lively presentation, this informative, entertaining program goes inside today's typical computer to look at the functions of its main components. Close-up visuals show the inner workings of the hard disc drive, while clever demonstrations make concepts such as memory, binary coding, and RAM easy to understand. Convenient summaries follow each section of new material. A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online. (32 minutes)

Only available in the US.
