Mr. Burelle’s Class Builds a Computer!

Category : Uncategorized

Alissa and Jesse

Alissa and Jesse proudly show the system BIOS of their Intel i7 computer running RAID 0.

A few students from Mr. Burelle’s class built a computer!  They worked during their recess and lunch breaks.  First, they installed the chip on the motherboard, then the RAM.  They configured the system BIOS to boot from the optical drive and played with with a few other settings.  They ran hardware diagnostics to ensure the RAM and hard drives were sound.  After a brief struggle with RAID drivers, they had the Linux operating system installed and running smoothly.

They then installed the Stellarium astronomy application form the package installer and explored the solar system.  They also played around with the 3D modeling application, Blender.

The group presented to the class in a half-hour presentation.

 

Great job kiddos!
