Lightning Tools has been offering support to The National Museum of Computing over the past twelve months. The National Museum of Computing based at Bletchley Park in England is home to The Turing-Welchman Bombe, Colossus, and Tunny that helped to shorten World War 2, along with other first generation machines such as the WITCH.
The National Museum of Computing offers programs to help learning and supports the community such as their involvement with Autism in the Workplace and now the Kids Ambassador program.
Lightning Tools has helped the museum that operates as a charity to support the Autism in the Workplace program by providing equipment, and has also now helped with the Kids Ambassador program.
Brett Lonsdale (co-founder of Lightning Tools) is also delighted to be helping mentor some of the children on the kids ambassador program as a mentor. We recognize how fast digitalization is progressing, and the need for a generation of young coders.
