It’s Electric!: The History Of Computers

September 12 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
Computers are everywhere today! They are our toasters with WiFi to robotic prosthetics, on our desks, in our pockets, in cars, even in our watches. Computers have gotten cheaper and smaller incredibly rapidly! But did you know that computers are much older than you think?
This Digital Visit program will talk about the history of computers and how we got to where we are through the many contributions from people across generations. See pictures of room-sized devices, and watch a nearly 100-year-old computer calculate.

*It’s Electric!
 Series is sponsored by Con Edison.

*Please note: This is a virtual program held via Zoom.
