Google is supporting two new exhibitions at the Science Museum in London, to stimulate people’s interest in computer technologies.
The exhibitions will be open for the public over the next three-four years.
According to Michael Jones, Google Earth’s chief technology advocate said that his company aims to work closely with museums to educate common people about the history of computers & their impacts on today’s lives.
The first exhibition is hoped to be open in June, 2012. It’ll celebrate the birthday of Alan Turing, who is a famous English mathematician and considered the “Father” of computer science.
While the second exhibition, named “Making Modern Communications” will not be opened until 2014 and will remain open as a permanent part of the museum thereafter. This exhibition will showcase the last 200 years of communication and technology.
“Besides, how else can we all touch the moon?” said Mr. Jones.
