The SEE Science Center is proud to host Manchester's year long celebration of the 100th anniversary of Ralph Baer's birth. Throughout 2022 the Ralph Baer Projects Club and SEE will be partnering to create special events to celebrate this milestone in our community.
Together we hope to inspire creativity and innovation. Ralph Baer 100 events will spread the word about Ralph Baer's legacy and engage the public in hands-on activities.

We will be adding additional events to the schedule throughout the year. Check back often.
