Virtual Computing History Tour - Thursday 29th October 2020
Join Jason for a LIVE Computing History virtual tour!
How can a computer be programmed by a strip of paper? Why does a huge block of old-fashioned memory have less capacity than a tiny chip in a mobile phone? What on earth is 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 011101010 01111001 (or 'binary' as we humans call it)?
These questions and more will be answered by a LIVE guided tour of the Centre! You will be led through the extraordinary advance in technology over 50 years of computing history and discover how computers have not only accelerated our lives, but radically transformed them.
The tour starts at 6:30pm GMT (11:30am PST), and will last around 1 hour. There will be time to ask questions at the end.
This is not a technical tour, it is for everyone and looks at how computers have developed, and changed our lives.
Suitable for all ages, recommended for those over 7.
One ticket permits your whole family to take part on one device.
Here's some feedback from our Patreons who tried and tested our virtual tours for us:
