How to Make Computer Model School Project – DIY using best out of waste


In this topic, we are going to show you how to build a computer model at home for your science project or exhibitions.

This computer model is built using waste materials such as cardboard, papers, colors and hot glue gun which is easily available at home at low cost.

Overview of a computer model

The Computer model is consist of keyboard, CPU(Central processing unit), Monitor, Mouse.

Input Devices : Keyboard and Mouse

These whole components are depicted in Cardboard for the school project.

How to make a computer model for a school project at home step by step using cardboard

In this video, we will show steps by step video instructions on how to build a computer model at home easy way.

First cut the cardboard into a medium size rectangular shape and glue it with light blue color paper.

This becomes the monitor of the computer. Next, make two small size rectangular shapes and glue them with black paper to form the base of the monitor.

Attach the large monitor to the base of the monitor so that it can stand firmly.
