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.

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.

Family Fun Field Trips - October 16 @ Computer Museum of America | Roswell | Georgia | United States

Technologies That Truly Altered History and Changed Lives Dramatically.  

Plan a fun family outing that’s also educational! School is different this semester and learning opportunities can come from anywhere. The Computer Museum of America (CMoA) makes it easy to incorporate moments of learning for children and adults alike. We’re offering fun activities around a monthly theme to supplement learning about the history of technology and it’s not just for “techies!”

Family Fun Field Trips are a fun way to enjoy a family outing while learning at the same time! Come experience the STEAM Timeline, visit the Apollo 11 and Supercomputer exhibits, meet our AI dog Aibo and more! Become a member at CMoA when you visit and come back each month (or more often!) to participate in the activities.

For October, CMoA will turn to a lesson on the machines that changed history. Learn about technologies that truly altered history and changed lives dramatically such as the Apple 1, Cray-1, and the Enigma Machine.
