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.
