Motherboard for Show & Tell for 2nd class.

Kate brought a motherboard in to school for show & tell today. :) She was able to give an interesting description of CPU, Memory and Clock. Kids at home were all practicing removing & replacing CPU and memory - tough for little fingers - jumpers have been moved all-over-the place.

About the CPU she said something like it's where everything goes in and gets collected and where everything happens like making the pictures for the screen.

Good use for geek-Dad's museums of old parts.
It's a board where the battery was soldered onto a flash chip for the bios.
A pin broke off when trying to replace the battery.
686 CPU, Very pretty blue heat sink and fan.
