Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum. Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

"A machine and language-independent textbook for beginners"
From inside cover:
The use of computers for data processing has revolutionised procedures and practice in offices in commerce, industry and public service. Computers are being used for more sophisticated and complex applications every day. The basic principles of computers and of computer programming remain the same even though they are being hidden in the multiplicity of complicated machinery and the welter of jargon that results from rapid and important technical advances.
This book explains these basic principles so that those interested in data processing or wishing to take up a career in programming can understand them before attempting to learn the programming languages involved in writing programs.
Since opening at the end of 2013, over 5,000 children have visited the Centre. These children deserve a space which is engaging and instructive, where they can feel a sense of adventure, exploration and surprise!
Please be assured that any amount you feel able to donate will make an immediate and significant impact.
