The National Science and Media Museum is supporting the Year of Engineering—a government campaign which celebrates the wonder of engineering.
Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting a range of fantastic events and activities: family festivals, show-days for schools, an engineering-themed Lates, and even some exciting special guests!
We’re focusing on unusual fields, unexpected routes, and the incredible stories of engineers from under-represented groups—all to show that engineering can be a career for anyone. We’re aiming to open up the world of engineering, encouraging the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers to join exciting, rewarding and creative industries that will help shape the future of the world we live in.
