The Turing Exhibition

To celebrate last year's centenary of Alan Turing's birth, the Science Museum in London has a special exhibition dedicated to his life and work.

If you don't know about him, Turing is often named as the father of modern computing. You can find out more about him here and here.

And he was my great uncle. I never met him, but it's still pretty cool to walk around an exhibition dedicated to someone you're related to and see people reading about him. Exciting :)

And after visiting there were homemade profiteroles (not made by me I hasten to add, but definitely enjoyed by me!)...

Well that is VERY cool as I learned about Turing's work when I was studying at college.

And the profiteroles look great, too.
