Backspace Does Not Erase: Learn How Typewriters Lead Us to the Computer Age

Want to try out a vintage typewriter and get a sense of what keyboards were like before computer keyboards? Can you type on a manual typewriter faster than you can tap out a message on your device? Experience how the keyboards felt and sounded before the machine was ever connected to electricity. See if you can identify some common keys on keyboards of today that were not on earlier models. Visit Computer Museum of America on Wednesday, November 23rd and Friday, November 25th from 1 – 3 PM and try out a few units and meet typewriter subject matter expert Tom Rehkopf.

SciTech Saturday - Edible Phases of the Moon Activity

Do you know a curious kid? You know, the one that always asks the why? what? and how? behind everyday things. SciTech Saturdays are here to satisfy some of their curiosity.

In honor of the recent successful Artemis I mission as well as to celebrate the Lunar New Year, kids will learn about the phases of the moon. With this edible activity, children will see the moon in different phases and discuss this monthly phenomenon with CMoA’s Education and Public Programs Manager. This workshop is geared to ages 5-12. Parents should plan to join in the fun.

Workshops begin at 11AM and have limited seating.

Free with museum admission.
