Moved to General Chat , to get more views.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I would print up some flyers,and pass them out or post them in the school,set up a meeting place and time,to discuss the Club and it's purpose and goals with fellow students.That would be my first step. Also,word of mouth works very well! You have to let your fellow students know of your intentions! Good Luck!

I will have to figure out what goals we would like to achieve and the purpose of the club is to have fun and learn more about computer and get ads on experience

PC building is a hands on way of learning about hardware in a computer.A must-in my opinion- for any PC enthusiast. Networking as well would be a good subject matter. Then there is computer security-antivirus,firewalls,and a host of other subjects that are relevant in today's tech world!

You also have to consider how you are going to instruct. One on One is probably best, then small groups with either a common interest or a common problem, but each group needs a leader/tutor who is at least half a page in the manual ahead of the group. You do not want, I think, a group of 15 - 30 (?) sitting in front of one tutor - they might as well be in a Computing Science class !

 

Teaching/tutoring/instructing can be great fun and very rewarding, I've been doing it for years but it does require a bit of organising and willingness to learn yourself.

 

Go for it - enjoy.

You can always get a consensus from the group as to what would be the first 3-4 interesting topics they would want to start off with.

I think for first off i will get a desktop pc with all the components and make a powerpoint showing what all the components. This educating everyone if they didn't know already. Also giving them a hands on experience on how to correctly dismantle the computer and rebuild it. That will be most likely where i will start off with after i make some-Club Goals -Events
