Friday, July 2nd at 1PM, we are reading “ABCs of Space” followed by a STEM space activity. Using their ABCs, children will work as a team to design and build a one-of-a-kind space rover that will be temporarily displayed at CMoA. Be sure to explore the museum before or after storytime where our almost life-size replica of a lunar lander makes a great photo backdrop. We’ll show you how to make a fun video of your youngster(s) so it looks like they are in zero gravity too! Tech Tales is free with admission and ideal for children ages 4 to 10.

Punch Card Machine Demo

Punch Card Machine Demo

Want to try your hand on an IBM punch card 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 punch cards 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 from 2-4PM!

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.
