When things become overwhelming, it’s important to persevere and keep at it.  One thing to be mindful of is that we can always find the energy to keep on going when we carve out habits that set us up to feel successful.  These habits make it possible for us to change the world!

What Makes a Computer a Computer?

Everyone is familiar with the stereotypical question that math teachers are asked by their exhausted students: When am I ever going to use this?  Interested in playing video games, using a smart phone, programming a robot, etc. ?

Bill Gates Presents a Short Series to Let YOU Know What Makes a Computer a Computer!  Work hard and maybe one day YOU will be the designers and engineers of tomorrow?  If not, at least you’ll be able to balance your checking account and estimate the cost of that smart phone that has tens of thousands of hours of programming behind it.
