Pop-Up Museum - Computers Get Personal
Bring our mini-museum to your school!
We can bring a mini version of the museum to you! This fascinating, interactive display will allow your students to experience the machines of another era. They will gain an understanding of how the mainframe computers of the '60s and '70s became small enough to evolve into personal computers and devices and how computing has become so pervasive in our lives today.
The display includes iconic computers and video game consoles dating back to the mid seventies and includes:
Our mobile computer museum is very interactive and we will have as many of these machines working as possible with playable video games and interactive software. The display uses original tech including glass tube televisions where appropriate. This adds an extra dimension to the display demonstrating how other technologies have become obsolete over time.
We will bring along pop-up banners to add information to the display and each exhibit will have an accompanying information panel.
We are very flexible regarding the frequency and format of the workshops and are happy to fit with your timetable. The sessions should be a minimum of 60 minutes but ideally 90 minutes. Each session will involve a lively presentation by our staff followed by some hands-on time with the exhibits, and rounded up with a question and answer session where we will ask what the students have learned about computing history.
Our staff will adjust the level at which the session is pitched depending on the keystage of the students.
