In this activity, students and teachers are able to sort components of a computer into 4 categories: input, output, process, and store (memory).
Reinforcing the ability to drag and drop, learners are able to identify and begin developing the purpose of each categorized component.

This activity complements the book Hello Ruby: Journey Inside the Computer by Linda Liukas and was remixed with permission from the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Computer Science Team.

Key concepts include:
mouse
keyboard
printer
microphone
headphones
monitor
controller
camera
temperature sensor
3-D printer
CPU
GPU
ROM
RAM
Hard Drive

Events in computer science are the triggers for making action happen, like selecting the play button on any screen. Events in Scratch are represented by the yellow codes including: when flag clicked, when sprite clicked, when key pressed and broadcast. Broadcasting is the most advanced event in Scratch and helps with interactions between sprites like pacing their conversations or changing levels.

Rating

Biomechanical engineering is an interdisciplinary field of science that applies the rules and principles of mechanical engineering to biological systems. It combines elements of many disciplines, including biology, engineering, physics, chemistry, and mathematics to better understand how physical forces influence living organisms. A biomechanical engineer may find work in the medical, scientific, industrial or governmental sectors. It is also sometimes considered a subset of Mechanical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering.
