Bits and chips - what makes a computer tick! - CPD for KS3 teachers


Wednesday Jun 20, 2018 from 12:45PM to 4:30PM


Hosted by CAS North East (Newcastle University)

This hands-on workshop is based on CAS Tenderfoot Unit 5 (http://www.computingatschool.org.uk/custom_pages/56-tenderfoot) on basic ideas underlying computers. We explore the structure of computers and computer processes from the level of individual bits upwards. Following an overview of the fetch execute cycle and programming at the machine instruction level with Little Man Computer, we will see how a computer is put together by looking at Boolean logic and machine architecture, truth tables, and how to build adders and other processor components from logic gates. The workshop will start with a sandwich lunch at 12:45.
