Future Engineers returns to the National Railway Museum this October half term for a fortnight of action-packed, free hands-on activities and interactive workshops. You’ll discover your hidden engineer and find out more about how the railways work. Here are some of the highlights.
- FLUX Dance: How do forces move our trains? FLUX Dance’s ‘Moving Science’ and ‘Expressive Forces’ workshops use movement, fun and lots of games to get you thinking, talking and moving.
- Engineer Like Me: It’s game show time. Ever wondered what it’s like to be an engineer? Find out what the panel of real-life engineers think about running with scissors, bridges, friction and everything in-between.
- Rap Science – award-winning science presenter, author and edu-rapper Jon Chase will be visiting York for the first time and dazzling crowds with his unique blend of science and hip-hop
- Track to the Future: What do magnets have to do with high speed travel? Can a battery push itself through a tube? Will future trains still have tracks? Get hands on and find out.
There’s loads of other great things going on too, including the chance to design a streamlined engine, exclusive access to the cabs of famous locomotives like Mallard and much more.
