INTEL THE JOURNEY INSIDE: THE COMPUTER EDUCATIONAL TEACHING KIT-1998 3RD EDITION. Kit includes an actual 6 (150mm) Intel Silicon Wafer, a non-working packaged Microprocessor (Pentium MMX Mechanical Sample CPU in Plastic PGA), loose Processor Chips (Diced Chips), Transistors, Diodes, connecting wires, and Batteries, for use in hands-on study lessons.
Also includes a Binder & VHS Video Tapes, both still sealed, full of Information and how to do the Tests/Lessons & a Poster. All 5 Kits have a different Silicon Wafer which is how Intel packaged these Kits.
The kits were created in consultation with the National Science Teachers Association. The Journey Inside Educational Program consists of three components. There is a teachers guide (including handouts and overheads) and a teachers video.
A classroom video includes 8 different 8-10 minute lessons. And there is a hands-on kit, allowing students to build circuits and begin to get a hands-on understanding of the basics of computer technology.
All the parts required for the electronics projects are included: switches, LED lights, transistors. This is one kit where batteries are definitely included; seemingly enough batteries to outfit a Radio Shack outlet. In addition, (my favorite) there's a collection of actual computer elements in the package; a real Pentium chip, and even a 6 (150mm)silicon wafer, and two loose diced (separated from wafer) chips. (These are parts that failed the reliability tests, but are valuable in letting teachers and students get their hands on the real thing, helping to make computers less mysterious).
The lessons were very well designed, each included a basic lesson, and a more advanced extension lesson, allowing teachers to easily adapt the material to the level of their students. Each lesson was designed to take about a half hour of classroom time. The package starts off with an introduction to computers, then looks at circuits and switches as the basis of computing. It continues by introducing the important concept of digital information, leading to an examination of microprocessors, and how chips are created. Finally, it moves on to examine networks, look at the impact of technology on society, and ends with a view of the future.The learning kits are no longer being made. Intel does offer the student curriculum online. The item "INTEL THE JOURNEY INSIDE THE COMPUTER EDUCATIONAL TEACHING KIT-1998 3RD EDITION" is in sale since Thursday, July 27, 2017.
