You Too Can Invent A Computer!

With Summer Session II starting tomorrow, we provide you with this:

As per the Computer History Museum, “An inspiring summer school on computing at the University of Pennsylvania’s Moore School of Electrical Engineering stimulated construction of stored-program computers at universities and research institutions. This free, public set of lectures inspired the EDSAC, BINAC, and, later, IAS machine clones like the AVIDAC.”

Summer schoolers, you have a lot to live up to.
