Punch Card Machine Demo @ Computer Museum of America
Jul 18 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Computer Museum of America provides demos of an IBM punchcard machine!  Punched cards were widely used through much of the 20th century in the data processing industry, where specialized and increasingly complex unit record machines, organized into semiautomatic data processing systems, used punched cards for data input, output, and storage.

Tech Tales – Storytime for Young Explorers – Albert Einstein & What Do You Do With an Idea? @ Computer Museum of America
Jul 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Come join us at the Computer Museum of America in Roswell as we celebrate Brain Day from 1PM to 2PM.  We will learn the importance of using our brain to come up with an idea and letting it grow, as well as reading about Albert Einstein, a scientist known for having a very big brain and lots of ideas that have changed the way we study physics today. There will be activities ideal for children aged 6 to 10 following the reading and afterwards, families are invited to explore the museum and its hundreds of objects which all started from a single idea! The museum is open from 12 PM to 5 PM.

The museum has large open space and has put safety measures in place for COVID-19.

Tech Tales – Storytime for Young Explorers – Ada Lovelace and the Thinking Machine @ Computer Museum of America
Jul 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

We’re reading “Ada Lovelace and the Thinking Machine” by Laurie Wallmark and “Rosie Revere, Engineer” by Andrea Beaty this week!

Friday, July 31, 1 – 2 PM

This week, bring your kids to storytime to learn about Ada Lovelace, one of the very first ‘computer scientists’, and her passion for inventions and creativity. We will also read “Rosie Revere, Engineer” which shares the importance of perseverance and never giving up when trying new things.

There will be activities ideal for children ages 6 to 10 following the reading and afterwards, families are invited to explore the museum and its hundreds of artifacts, many of which are rooted in Ada Lovelace’s contributions to computer science! The museum is open from 12 PM to 5 PM on Friday, and 10 AM – 5 PM on Saturday.

When arriving in time for Tech Tales on Friday, one child is free with each adult admission! The museum has large open space and has safety measures in place for COVID-19.

Punch Card Machine Demo @ Computer Museum of America
Aug 1 @ 2:00 am – 4:00 am

Want to try your hand on an IBM punchcard machine? Punched cards were widely used through much of the 20th century in the data processing industry, where specialized and increasingly complex unit record machines, organized into semiautomatic data processing systems, used punched cards for data input, output, and storage. Critical record keeping was done on punchcards across many industries and dropping a stack of cards was a disaster. Come learn more about how this machine was used and punch your own souvenir card to take home during the demo on Saturday from 2-4PM!

Museum is open Friday 12-5PM and Saturday 10AM-5PM.
