The first step to learning any new skill is learning the terminology associated with it. This rule applies to crafts, cooking, school and merit badges. Computer Fun aims to teach girls fundamental computer skills. At the Pioneer / Patriot level, girls look at the internal workings of a computer and storage.
If you are working on this merit badge, print out the worksheet below and define the terms listed. A great resource (other than Google) is www.PC.net. As a note to parents, there is ads on this site, but none of the ones I saw were questionable. There is also a section on text slang and emoticons that was interesting. I have to admit, I already knew most of them and I am not always up on teenage lingo so they may not be up-to-date.
NOTE: The requirements have been greatly simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
