Kathy Kleiman, author of Proving Ground: The Untold Story of the Six Women Who Programmed the World’s First Modern Computer, will tell how she tracked down these women and captured their stories starting at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the free Discovery Center Community Forum at Havre de Grace Middle/High School, 445 Lewis Lane, Havre de Grace, MD 21078.
We celebrate the mathematical constant pi on March 14 because March 14 can be written 3/14 and the first three numbers of pi are 3.14. Then it goes on forever. The celebration was started in 1988 by Larry Shaw, who worked at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California. Like the Discovery Center at Water’s Edge, it’s a fun place to learn about science and technology. Watch the video to learn more!
