Students Building Computers

Mississippi Students Build Their Own PC’s (NYT): “The mission: building about 6,000 computers so that every Mississippi classroom will have an online computer by the end of 2002.” This would be good to do in engineering colleges in developing nations. It helps create the technical knowledge in students as well as creates a bottom-up computing infrastructure.

Adds the article: “One of the most exciting results…is not only that computers are being placed in classrooms, but that the students who built them are learning marketable skills. Preparing students for certification as computer technicians is an important goal of the program.”
