ERA Educates over 200 Children

Over the past two years we have seen our Parts to PC program for children between the ages of 12 to 15 evolve. ERA has educated over 200 children Canada wide, partnering with organizations like United Way to bring youth workshops to your community. For those of you who are not aware of this awesome program for children here you go:

Wouldn’t it be cool to learn how to build a computer from scratch? Well, ERA created a brand new workshop for exactly that purpose. Parts to PC will give you hands-on experience taking apart and reassembling a computer. You will also learn about what all of the pieces inside of a computer do and how to install them. The best part is there is no cost to participate!

From disassembled parts to a working machine, Parts to PC offers a full-circle approach that will conclude with powering on and testing the assembled finished product. Students will walk away from the experience with practical knowledge for troubleshooting hardware issues as well as a basic understanding of all of the elements working together inside of a computer. You never know, it could even be the first step toward building your own robot!

The two-hour workshop will be held at our Calgary depot, located at 1301 34 Ave SE, Calgary once a month from 10:15am to 12:15pm (pre-registration is mandatory). With class sizes restricted to eight participants, students will receive dedicated instruction on the hardware elements of common computers. Students will assemble a computer with the help of a qualified and knowledgeable instructor.


We welcome children to join us for our next youth workshop which takes place on September 14th at our warehouse in Calgary.  ERA are constantly looking for partnerships with organizations like United Way to team up with and host programs at their location.
