The Centre for Computing History is a computer, game console, and video game museum. Based in Cambridge, it hosts hands-on exhibitions, educational workshops and a wide range of activities and events. The Centre will be providing a gaming area and community hub at OLL '22 throughout the weekend.
A pioneering educational charity, The Centre for Computing History (CCH) opened at its current site in Cambridge in August 2013. CCH was established as an educational charity to tell the story of the Information Age through exploring the historical, social and cultural impact of developments in personal computing. It maintains a long-term collection of objects to tell this story and exploits them through education and events programmes.
The growth and innovation of the computing revolution has been fast and furious. Having created our global society, whereby our thinking, means of communication and the way we organise our lives have been irreversibly transformed, it is now impossible to envisage a world without computers or the Internet.
There is now a generation growing up who know very little about how this has all come to pass. The Centre for Computing History tells this story.
The Centre for Computing History aims to deliver inspirational learning opportunities to a wide range of audiences – from pre-schoolers to the over-70s – so people become confident and creative users of information and digital technology. We offer a range of education services on site including programming and electronics workshops and other interactive learning using 1980s BBC Micros and Raspberry Pis for school students (all Key Stages) and the general public.
We also deliver training sessions to teachers to give them the knowledge, skills and confidence to teach computing to their students in an engaging way.
The Centre for Computing History receives no Government funding and so please help support them by visiting their website and donating what you can.
