All images were scanned by students using Color It, our own electronic devices (some of which we were able to put back together and others we were not) the QuickCam, our own video/stills (courtesy of Chad C. the camera man) from a field trip taken to Technical Support, Inc., (an electronics /custom-made circuit board firm in Omaha NE, Dr. William Mahoney graciously allowed us to videotape the internal workings of his business and gave us his time and expertise) and a conventional camera. The chip image,TV, and the external/internal computer were courtesy of Corel Gallery. The electric bolt, book and pen were courtesy of HyperStudio clip art. We created our own background image using Color It. We also created our animated Digit using GifBuilder. The other animated gifs were courtesy of <http://bellsnwhistles.com>.
