Steaming Forward

‘Steam to Green: A North East Energy Revolution’ is a major new exhibition at the Discovery Museum that tells the story of energy and the climate crisis in the region.

There’s a lot of ground covered in this show, which looks back to the industrial revolution in the north-east, but also forward to the pioneering contributions in green technologies that are happening right now in the region. The exhibition will also seek to demystify green technologies, as well as showcase science and engineering objects from the museums’ historical collections, including some that have not been on display for many years. ‘Steam to Green’ will also include a family events programme, schools learning programme, and adult after-hours events. Details from the website, below.
