Centre for Computing History - Cambridge, UK - Museum Preview Weekend with Microsoft

category: code [glöplog]

The Centre for Computing History would like to invite you to a special preview day in its new home in Cambridge. The Centre will be opening on Saturday 8th June and Sunday 9th June to allow the general public to view and interact with a selection of computing history and see what the future will hold for this amazing facility.

The preview weekend will also feature a chance to build a digital camera using the Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer system. Paul Foster and Steven Johnston from Microsoft will be coming along to the Centre to run a series of short courses to show you how. Spaces for these sessions are limited, so booking is required to ensure your place.

Preview Day - Gadgeteer Session The centre will be open from 9:30am to 4:30pm on both days. We will have an interactive display of vintage computers in our foyer and you will be able to see the main display area which is currently being developed. You can even come and relive the 80's by visiting our 1980's classroom, with working BBC Micros for you to try your hand at programming!

Some of the computers on display include the Acorn BBC Micro, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, IBM PC, Apple Macintosh and more ...

Come and speak with the people involved in the project and find out more about our plans and aspirations for the future ...

Entry to this unique open weekend is a minimum donation of £5 per family (up to 4 people). You can pay on the door but if you would like to attend one of our .Net Gadgeteer sessions (Saturday Only) you MUST book and pay in advance.
