Iowa has deep historical roots when it comes to developing new technology.
  • In 1942, Clifford Berry from Gladbrook and John Vincent Atanasoff developed the first electronic digital computer together at Iowa State University in Ames. 
  • In 1968, Robert Noyce, born in Burlington and raised in Grinnell, founded Intel, which was inspired by his invention of the “microchip,” and sparked the personal computer age that gave Silicon Valley its name. 
  • In 1993, Marc Andreesen, a Cedar Falls native, created Mosaic, the first widely used web browser, which is credited with creating the worldwide web.
