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.

CMoA Middle Grades Summer STEAM Camp @ Computer Museum of America | Roswell | Georgia | United States
CMOA is proud to present our first annual Summer STEAM Camps for middle grade students!

Our week long day camp hosted at our museum in Roswell is designed to ignite and enhance your young scientist’s (or student’s) interest in all things STEAM! Each day will focus on a different element of STEAM:

  • Monday: Science
  • Tuesday: Technology
  • Wednesday: Engineering
  • Thursday: Arts
  • Friday: Mathematics

Our campers will participate in enriching experiments, labs, projects, and activities designed to elevate their understanding of the elements of STEAM, expose them to careers in STEAM, and spark their interest in STEAM related subjects! Your camper will leave this week’s experience excited about STEAM and ready to go back to school and apply all their learning!

Campers should bring their own device for activities scheduled throughout the week. If help is needed to rent a device, CMoA will work with the camper’s family.

Masks are required and social distancing protocols will be observed.

Campers will need to bring lunch and water each day.

Museum After-Hours: Punching Up The Punch Card Exhibit
Jun 23 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us Friday, June 23rd from 5:30 – 9:00 PM as we unveil a refresh to CMoA’s punch card exhibit. The expanded exhibit tells the story of how punched cards became so prevalent and depended upon in modern computing. From Jacquard’s Loom to Herman Hollerith’s invention of electromechanical processing of cards to tabulate data for the 1890 census, to the late 20th-century use of the IBM family of punch card machines, the punch card was revolutionary at the time. They were even used for matchmaking at the University of Iowa in 1963!

Join us for the exhibit refresh unveiling, punch a souvenir card on an IBM 029, and explore the other exhibits while enjoying live music, complimentary light bites, and a cash bar.

Tickets are $25.00 if purchased in advance.

Limited tickets at the door are $30.00.
