Please Note: This is an archived page for an event held in 2023

Strip it, rebuild it, plug it in and make it go!

Experiment and play with a collection of donated computers from Dunedin organisations and learn about computers with the assistance of our volunteers. Learn the major parts of and inside a computer, how to get them out of the case and motherboard, trouble test to make sure the computer works again and troubleshoot problems. Get your real geek on and take a look at linux.

If you don't have a computer at home, you can sign up at the event to get a FREE working computer, plus peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse and cables) to take home for your homework.

This event is suitable for children over the age of 12. Children between 8 and 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
