As part of its commitment to social responsibility and support for education and culture, Elias Neocleous & Co LLC is proud to be among the principal supporters of the first Computer History Museum in Cyprus, which opened its doors to the public for the first time on 21 October in Hall 1 of the International State Fair of Cyprus, in an educational event hosting free robotics and programming lessons to students of primary and secondary education.
The Museum was founded by Retro Computing & Gaming Ltd, a non-profit company, limited by guarantee, on the initiative of Nicholas Ktenas, a partner in the Nicosia office of our firm, and Alexandros Kofteros, a teacher by profession with a PhD in Information and Communication Systems. More information about the Museum and its exhibits can be found at http://www.mouseio.org/
The Museum boasts a collection of more than 100 original computers and peripherals from the 1970s to the 1990s, from the Apple II to the first laptops and IBM compatibles, prominently displayed in a specially designed and curated space of more than 400 square meters.
The Museum is responsible for the operation of a Museum Educational Program on its premises from Monday to Friday every week, approved by the Ministry of Education of Cyprus and delivered by qualified professional teachers to students of primary and secondary education who visit the Museum by prior arrangement through their schools. More information about the Museum Education Program can be found at http://codingourfuture.org/
