Computers Bug Me! Creativity Lesson Plan

This lesson plan is for the beginning of the year as an introduction to the course and concepts.  It is intended to be highly creative while also incorporating computer history, hardware and terminology.   Students will create a product using hardware.   This lesson may be interesting to both boys and girls as it requires disassembly of a CPU but also allows creating an object using artistic expression.
