How do computers work?

Some of us were curious about how computers are made and how they work. We took apart a very old computer and looked at the pieces. We came up with lots of 'wonderings' and some of us had a really good guess at what some of the parts might do.

Do not try this at home!  As we discussed in school all things that use electricity are very dangerous!  

We learnt that computers are only as smart as the people who write the programmes that make them go. 
This 20 minute video of the magic school bus explains how computers works.
