George Boole’s School – Exhibition at Lincoln Museum

Jul 15
15th July 2023 - 19th November 2023

Discover how a teacher from Lincolnshire changed our world forever in a new exhibition at Lincoln Museum: George Boole's School.

Inspired by the life and legacy of the Lincolnshire-born mathematician George Boole, who devised Boolean algebra, on which much of our computer language is based today.

Throughout his life, Boole worked as a dedicated teacher. He began teaching at the very early age of 16. Taking Boole’s dedication to teaching as a starting point, the Courtyard Gallery has been transformed into a classroom environment that celebrates the history, present and future of maths and the scientific age. 

In this free exhibition, you can:

  • Discover the history of Western maths and how it has developed.
  • Learn about the life of the local man who devised Boolean logic, influencing the future of electrical engineering and computer science.
  • De-code some of the words used in modern maths, science and computing.
