#ben #eater #8-bit #cpu #breadboard #hardware

The CPU or "brain" of a computer: Ever wondered how they function? or even wondered how complicated and intricate they are? 
Join us for a four-part series to learn more about how CPU's function. Participate in building a functioning 8-bit CPU from scratch. We will watch instructional videos from Ben Eater before jumping in and assembling a different component of his 8-bit breadboard computer kits at the end of each session. For this session, we will assemble the Clock Module of the 8-bit CPU.
