The activity consisted in the building/assembling of a computer. Each participant had a workstation with the necessary parts/components to build the computer.

Initially, a formative introduction took place, where the participants learned the basis of each computer part, the relation between them and their assembling. Then, in a second stage, each person assembled a computer step-by-step, following the speaker’s instructions. Meanwhile, at 6 PM a coffee break took place. The workshop ended around 8 PM.
