Special Exhibitions
Barbie Gets with the Program

While it may seem radical to imagine Barbie computing in the ’70s, the computer science field was actually far more gender balanced four decades ago than it is today. Experience the history of gender and computing through the lens of computer playsets from the 1970’s to today. Each is paired with the operable machines that inspired them.

Open April 1, 2017 - September 3rd, 2017

//50 years of computers and learning//
