5. Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education*

In general, computer science is the study of the principles and use of computers. Everything from wristwatches to refrigerators is likely to have a computer in it these days, thus studying computer science is a good career start. Computer science skills can be used across all industries, making for virtually endless career possibilities. Many of the ERA/UNIVAC/Sperry engineers had technology degrees or hands on experiences before Computer Science Degrees were available. From our readers, these links are for future generations!

*The VIP Club does not control the content of any site linked from this section - each was posted at the request of the 'From' person and each relates to technology education.

Hi Lowell, Here is a document that could be of CAD interest: http://aheiden.net/INDICATES_users_guide-px10258-rev_f-01aug1980.pdf

6.7 from John Westergren:

The 24 August south metro newspaper issue and web site has an article by Tony Wagner about the emerging Legacy technology exhibit at the DCHS Lawshe Museum in South St. Paul. See http://www.startribune.com/local/south/220951371.html.  There are three factual errors in the article: 1) ERA is Engineering Research [printed as Resource] Associates; 2) Lockheed Martin 'shuttered' their Eagan Facility in 2012 [printed as 2010]; and 3) the two truck loads were delivered to the museum in December 2012 [printed as this year.] Illustrated in our Legacy icon above right is the entire sequence of company names from ERA to Lockheed Martin. The article text is somewhat remiss in that it doesn't include the UNIVAC name nor the fact that UNISYS is still in operation.

6.8 from Steve Koltes:

This site has brochures. http://www.computerhistory.org/brochures/applications.php?application=thm-42c167ac6dd22&sortBy=&s=30&application=thm-42c167ac6dd22&sortBy

Glen's Computer Museum has a wide variety of electronic equipment including reference to some UNISYS computers such as the AN/UYK-44. The link is http://www.glennsmuseum.com/
