Over 50 Years of Tech
On Tuesday we welcomed The Code Show to Beaudesert. They brought computers and technology from over 50 years ago, including the Sinclair Spectrum, BBC Micro, Commodore 64 and the Atari ST! A brief lecture walked the Prep children through the home technology revolution starting from the use of typewriters in the 1930s right up to the HD computer screens we have at home today. The children were then given the opportunity to use the different machines, which also included early mobile phones and cameras, and challenged their classmates to a game of Pong!
