Alan Turing

I now live not too far from Blechely Park, and when I first moved here it was one of the places I made a point to visit.

But not because of computig, actually more because of the wider historical significance of the code breaking home.

Once inside however I gotto follow the story of the early computers of the UK, and discover Mr Turing’s considerable contribution to WW2, Science, and computing.

In light of this I created a one slide presentation to use in computing/ICT lessons.

 

Feel free to use in your lessons, perhaps ask students to investigate his life, although he made a major contribution to society and the war his life came to an unhappy end.
