Hello, young computer scientists! Today, we are going to embark on an adventure through time to discover how computers have evolved into the incredible machines they are today.

The Early Days

Our journey begins over 2000 years ago when the first computing device was invented - the abacus. From there, we will travel through time, exploring the development of counting methods, mechanical calculators, and early computers such as the Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine.

The Digital Revolution

As we approach the 20th century, we'll witness the birth of the electronic computer, which led to a revolution in data processing. You'll learn about the first electronic computers such as the ENIAC, and the development of programming languages including FORTRAN and COBOL.

Modern Day Computers

Finally, we'll arrive at the present day, where you'll be able to recognize the powerful computers that we use in our daily lives. Here, you'll witness how our machines have evolved and how they will continue to evolve in the future.


Our journey has come to an end, but we hope it has been an exciting adventure for you. Remember, the evolution of computers is ongoing and who knows what amazing innovations may be on the horizon. So keep learning, keep exploring, and keep innovating.
