Boulder Teen Science Café Schedule

October 2018
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
Time: 5:30-7:30pm
Location: CU Boulder’s Continuing Education
Topic: Old School: Media Archaeology Lab Tour and 80s Tech Escape Room Challenge

The October café will take us on a journey back in time that predates our sleek smartphones and slim laptops. Join us as we get up close and personal with the incredibly clunky ancestors of our modern devices. The CU Media Archaeology Lab is home to dozens of computers from decades past, plus typewriters, vintage cameras, video game consoles and a large, hand-crank phonograph machine. Visitors can disassemble an Apple II computer, go head-to-head on an Atari 2600 and copy documents on a 1960s-era mimeograph machine. Come for the evening or get locked in forever if you can’t master the puzzles at our 80s tech-themed escape room!
