The first computer

Imagine a world without computers! It’s hard to believe, right? Computers are like our super smart friends who help us with everything from schoolwork to creating awesome new inventions. But do you know when the very first computer was created? Let’s dive into a time machine and travel back to February 14, 1946, in the USA.

Picture this massive machine that weighed as much as 30 elephants! Yes, you heard it right, 30 TONS! This incredible invention had 18,000 electronic tubes inside it. These tubes were like the little brains of the computer, making it work and process information.

This gigantic computer was used for a whopping 9 whole years! That’s a pretty long time for a computer to stick around. Before this amazing invention came along, people were trying to create computers, but they weren’t fully finished and couldn’t actually be used.

So, next time you’re playing a cool video game or doing research for a school project on your own computer, just remember that it all started with this super heavy, super smart machine from 1946. Computers have come a long way since then, and we can’t wait to see what incredible things they’ll do in the future!
