Great North Engineering Experience

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s a team of ‘invisible’ superheroes!

Offering a unique take on engineering, the Great North Engineering Experience will feature 12 invisible ‘superheroes’ of the North who are responsible for shaping the world in which we live today.

The exhibition will showcase the modern engineering industry that exists in the North through engaging and interactive displays, exhibitions by northern engineering companies, a series of talks and family-friendly lectures, as well an opportunity to find out about careers in engineering.

There will also be a range of hands-on engineering activities, including our Lego challenge competition.

Local civil, mechanical and electrical engineers are working with The Great Exhibition of the North (GEOTN) to present the Great Northern Engineering Experience at Neville Hall, the headquarters of the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers, that is situated on the Innovation Route walking trail of the GEOTN.

Come and celebrate the inventive and radical spirit of the past, find out what we do, and see how the engineers of today are shaping the way we will all live tomorrow.

LECTURE PROGRAMME: Tuesdays 6pm for 6.30pm start.
