HLF Review 2016

Outreach as a student I

Outreach as a student I came into contact with all types of machines. I was even able to help out a little bit with the development of the Z43. It was then clear to me that my profession would be focused around data processioning,” recalled Andreas Reuter. At the heart of the interactive, English language exhibition, there were simulations of Zuse’s machines in addition to the Zuse Archive. Visitors could experiment with the mechanical circuitry of Konrad Zuse‘s machines at various exhibits and also take a virtual tour of the Z1 which is located in Berlin. The exhibition pieces, including some originals from the Zuse estate, were on loan from the Konrad-Zuse-Museum Hünfeld, the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum Paderborn and the Stiftung Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin. There were also excerpts from the documentary about the computer pioneer, directed by Mathias Knauer, that were screened throughout the exhibition. In the six days its doors were open, over 1,500 visitors experienced the exhibition, including attendees of the 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum. 110
