Back in 1994, Intel launched a programme called The Journey Inside: The Computer, for schools in the USA and Canada. Today, I'm exploring one of those kits from 1998, including Teacher's Guide, Video Tapes and the incredible Chip Kit, containing all kinds of exciting gubbins.

  • Video notes; Although ENIAC is mentioned as the 'first general purpose computer' in this video. It's debatable somewhat. For example, the Colossus came a couple of years earlier (although wasn't declassified until recently), and although it doesn't have the same programming flexibility, it could be argued to hold the title. If you want to know what the video presenters have been up to since; Rebecca White - www.imdb.com/name/nm3301133/ Annette Chavez - www.imdb.com/name/nm0154533/ Brahman Turner - www.imdb.com/name/nm2133186/ If you're interested in seeing the entire video content; I'll be uploading the captured VHS content to archive.org for preservation, and potentially to my extra channel, once I've tidied them up.

    • @SID The Enigma was less complicated than a mechanical calculator. It was an elaborate transposition cypher. The average subscriber dialled phone switch is way more complicated (the Japanese Purple cyphers were built on a modified phone switch - and complicated by the Japanese writing systems.) The Lorenz cyphers were the real start of modern cryptography since they had 12 rotors compared to Enigma's three and Triton's four. Colossus was built to crack Lorenz not Enigma.

  • The transistor in the instructions is Mosfet (Drain, Gate, Source). The transistor in the kit is bipolar (TIP48). This could cause some problems if you put a powerful 1.5v battery with thick(ish) wires on the transistor. It'll get very hot with the base current reaching several amps. Mosfet transistors have insulated gates. The equivalent pin on a bipolar transistor (Base) isn't insulated but presents a diode with a 0.6v drop.

    • We had one computer in my elementary school in ~1980. I think it got most of its use after school by me and some friends. We played "Super Star Trek." A few years later, in Jr High, there was one computer, an Apple ][. It was only available to kids in the Honor Society, pretty much none of whom were interested in computers. Meanwhile the weirdos who were couldn't use it. In my 2000-student HS in the mid-1980s there was one computer classroom with terminals that connected to a DEC minicomputer somewhere. It was only used for computer programming classes that were taught at some ungodly early hour (6 or 7am). I tested into the intermediate class but never attended, so I never met any of the handful of other students. There was also one Mac, in the graphics/printing shop. Students mostly used it to play Dark Castle after getting bored/frustrated with MacPaint. I think American schools spent a long time trying to figure out what to do with computers. I think most of the funding that did exist went into using computers as educational media, like an interactive VCR, rather than actually using them to teach programming and computer science, or even "word processing," and spreadsheets. Much of the money spent to use them as educational media was probably wasted. Books were a lot cheaper back then and worked just as well.

We only got as far as the LED & transistor exercise. Those "Classic" batteries had that design for years, and they weren't even alkaline. They kinda made a resurgence as a cheap alternative, as NiCad rechargeables were starting to gain more popularity & become more affordable.

  • Man I honestly think if we had access to this kit or even just the video in elementary school or Junior High (grade 1-6, &7-9) it might have seriously changed my life. I was born in 1987 and all I remember of the first 6 years of school was a bunch of old apple 2s in a room, and 4 of the newer internet connected macs in the library eventually upgrading to one in each classroom. In junior high we got the multi color I macs in a room off the library. All I remember in all of those years is being taught that computers were basically a big encyclopedia painfully too slow to use, something for using macs version of Microsoft paint, and of course in elementary school...ugly green boxes with Oregons trail (omg! Best school days ever!) And something like space invaders. All we ever covered was your basic electrical....positive negative, ac/DC, electro magnet.... motor, switch... done. No transistor, fets, capacitors, etc. Computers no way. Junior high was just hamsterdance and highschool was looking at pictures of buffy the vampire slayer... until someone stole all the computer mice and literally bankrupted the entire highschool computer budget. Of course I eventually got a computer at home that my dad used for book keeping in junior high with AOL and 56k that was 1kb a second and we learned about Napster etc and mp3s that took 2 days to download and that's all that a computer was to me. By the time I finally met someone who actually had any clue about a computer or got access to dsl was after highschool and too late. Made up for it by wasting a year of my life on the original COD Lol. I was literally one of the top 10 in the world. If only we had twitch or SEworld back then... few years later I learned enough to start an online business, barely.... lost it all to an unscrupulous web host.
