Today you will get your hands a little dirty. Please make sure that you listen to all the procedures before we start. After you take everything a part, we will spend the next day putting the systems back together and labelling a diagram of a "typical" mainboard (you will want to print this out at the start of class).
It is also not too early to start thinking about your culminating project. As we talked about in class, I want to be able to support you in any direction that you would like to go in re: your own self-directed learning. We will learn many fundamentals in class, but it's during the culminating activity that you can truly push yourself to explore your interests.
A good place to start for unbelievably cool ideas is Instructables. Chocked full of absolute awesomeness!
Remember, the culminating activity is NOT about the $$ spent, but rather the challenge and the process
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
