Ralph Baer 100

Join & Support the Celebration

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.

Please consider supporting this effort.  Donations and sponsorship contributions may be made below.

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

Ralph Baer (1922- 2014) was an engineer and inventor with more than 150 patents.  His “brown box" controller became the original prototype for the first video game.  He was born to a Jewish family in Germany who fled to the U.S. in  1938. He later served in the U.S. Army during WWII.  He began his engineering career in New York and moved to Manchester, NH in 1955 where he lived and worked for the remainder of his life.  He received many awards and honors throughout his career including the United States National Medal of Technology.  His workshop is on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
