You Can Build a Computer!
Laura Albrecht, 2022 Showcase
An Infinite Learning Program at Santa Cruz Public Libraries. The program objectives are: 1. To inspire makers. 2. To encourage curiosity and learning around the computing hardware and systems that we use daily. 3. To promote re-use of discarded computers and parts (as a response to the global issues of overconsumption and excess waste).
