Dollenmayer, David B.
The Kinder-Akademie Fulda, a children's museum in Germany, invited the project team to teach a workshop on computers for 9 to 13-year-olds. We entitled the workshop "From Abacus to Microchip, How a Computer Functions." The topics covered were historical number systems and computing machines, binary numbers, the history of computer programming and data storage, how a printer operates, flowcharts, and how to write a simple program in C++. The workshop was entirely planned and taught in German by the project team.
