Aim: Basic information about a working and use of a computer.
Audience: 70 chirpy and inquisitive children.

Children are always excited to learn about something new and this excitement was pretty evident when we informed the kids that we are going to teach them about computers. Many of them heard or seen pictures of a computer but had never seen it first hand. Satya’s laptop was a Santa’s gift to them!!!!!!!!!!
The session was divided into two parts:
Part1:Explaination of the various parts of a laptop which was taken up by Satya.
Part2: How to use a some basic software which was taken up by Shekar.
Satya explained the kids about the various parts of a laptop like parts of the laptop like the Display, Keypad, Touch pad, speakers, battery etc. Kids were asked to write down the names of the parts from blackboard for their future reference.
Shekar talked to kids about how to use some basic functionalities like the word pad and paint.He also taught them to how to play some games. The session ended with the kids being shown some some videos on the laptop.
The basic aim of the session was to introduce these kids to a laptop.We are planning some more classes in the future where the kids would be given some hands on using the machine.
