On Thursday, we learned about servers. We took a server and we took the cover off and looked inside of it.
In a server, there is a CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Hard Drive, etc.
The Motherboard is usually green, it holds all of the items necessary to use the computer.
CPU stands for "Central Processing Unit". It cannot be seen because it is under a heat sink.
RAM stands for "Random Access Memory". The RAM holds information for a short time.
The heat sink is used for cooling heat. If a computer does not have a heat sink, it would overheat.
The power supply is were the computer gets all its power from.
The clock battery keeps the time on the computer even when the computer is not use.
The media drive is where you place disks.
On Friday, we learned about the Raspberry Pi. It is like a mini-server.
I learned that the Raspberry Pi was made in the United Kingdom.
The Raspberry Pi was invented for children to learn how to code.
Here is a picture of the Raspberry Pi.
