This lesson delves into the microscopic world of computer chip design and manufacturing.

  • Have student take notes during video

The companion website for this video series does not have a separate section for the "Creating Chips" video, however, this "Microprocessor" page contains several links associated with the design and manufacture of computer chips.  Use the "Activity" on  these links to recap the video and explore some of the concepts inter-actively:

  • This page has animations/activities about the microscopic scale of computer chips
  • This page has an animation/activity about the ingredients that go into making chips
  • This page has animations/activities about the layers that make up computer chips
