Being on the Computer Restoration Project enabled me to tune my skills and to learn new techniques. We covered a wide variety of topics from fault finding to building a PC from scratch.

The whole team, from the administration through to my supervisor, were helpful, understanding and very clear about what we were doing. The project itself was interesting and helped me develop new skills that I can take into the workplace.
