MOVIE – Silicon Valley: A documentary

May 13 @ 16:00 - 17:15

In 1957, decades before Steve Jobs dreamed up Apple or Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a group of eight brilliant young men defected from the Shockley Semiconductor Company in order to start their own transistor business. Their leader was 29-year-old Robert Noyce, a physicist with a brilliant mind and the affability of a born salesman who would co-invent the microchip — an essential component of nearly all modern electronics today, including computers, motor vehicles, cell phones and household appliances. AFTER the movie – we can have a brief discussion session. NOTE: You must supply your own soda pop and popcorn! 🙂 Trivia may also follow, so bring your Jeopardy hats too Co-sponsored by: Subramaniam Ganesan Agenda: 4:00 PM – Welcome and Introductions, Chapter business update; (on your own) Pizza, Popcorn and Soda Pop 4:15 PM – Documentary 5:00 PM – End of Documentary; Start of Q & A; Group Discussion 5:15 PM – Wrap Up Room: Digital, Bldg: Virtual, Rochester, Michigan, United States, 48309-4479
