Inspired by a trip to the Goodwill Computer History Museum in Austin, CS students create their own computer history exhibit in Mood Bridwell Hall.


This fall ACM CS Club Co-Advisors Suzanne Buchele and David Williamson took interested students to the Goodwill Computer History Museum in Austin, a now annual event.  Students enjoyed seeing computer systems from years past and hearing about the short but rich history of computer technology! 

The field trip to the computer history museum got our ACM CS Club excited about doing our own mini-computer history museum exhibit, with a lot of help and resources from our advisor David Williamson and leadership from museum curator Jefferson Ellinger.  Club members had a lot of fun deciding on the exhibit and putting it together.  The current exhibit is on the history of Apple is housed across from the elevator in Mood-Bridwell Hall.  We plan to change exhibits at least once per semester.
