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.
This month’s SciTech topic will explain how heat transfers through solids, liquids, and gases. Why do our computers get so hot? How can we cool them down?
Workshops begin at 11AM and 2PM and have limited seating.
Free for members or with museum admission.
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.
