ABOUT STEVE WOZNIAK

In 1978, he revolutionized the tech industry. Now, he’s revolutionizing education. In 1978, Steve Wozniak single-handedly built the Apple II computer, a computer that would change the way people interacted with technology.

The Apple II was revolutionary because it was the first computer in the world that could display graphics in color, and had a built-in BASIC computer language, which astounded the tech world. In fact, the Apple II became the first highly successful mass-produced personal computer. This computer helped push Apple Computer, the company he co-founded with Steve Jobs, to the top of the tech world.
