Welcome back, young computer scientists! Today, we will be diving into the exciting world of computer evolution.


Before we go any further, let's take a moment to think about what evolution means. Have you heard of evolution before?

When we talk about evolution, we're talking about how something changes or develops over time. When we talk about computer evolution, we're talking about how computers have changed and developed over time!


Let's take a closer look at the evolution of computers. We'll start by looking at the earliest computers ever made. Can you guess what they looked like?

Believe it or not, the earliest computers were actually huge machines that took up entire rooms! They didn't have screens or keyboards like the computers we use today. Instead, people programmed them using punch cards, which were like little pieces of paper with holes punched in them.


Over time, computers got smaller and more powerful. They started to have screens and keyboards, which made them easier for people to use.

Nowadays, computers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some people use desktop computers, which stay in one place and have a separate monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Some people use laptops, which are like smaller versions of desktop computers that you can carry around with you. And some people even use tablets or smartphones, which are small enough to fit in your pocket!


Can you think of any other examples of how computers have evolved over time? How have they changed since your parents or grandparents were kids?

Take a moment to think about how you use computers in your daily life. How do they make your life easier or more fun?

Now that we have a better understanding of the evolution of computers, we can start to appreciate just how far we've come. Who knows what new and exciting developments the future will bring?


Great work today, young computer scientists! You now have a better understanding of how computers have evolved over time. We look forward to continuing our journey together as we explore this amazing field further.
