The History of Computers

The resources below give information about the history of computers. A set of twenty-two small posters are available, along with a printable display banner.

Print the posters and use them to make your own timeline showing some of the events in the history of computers. Can your children find out about any other events? Could they research one of the events and create a report about it? Which of the events have occurred in their lifetime? Could they predict what how technology might change in the future?
