The Think Ahead exhibition at Scienceworks looks at the history of technology and innovation, and asks us to consider what the future will be like. Come along to explore the exhibition and take part in some hands on explorations of design and technology. Please note: Scienceworks provides free entry to children 16 years and under so feel free to bring your children to this event.

Entry will be from 10am for a 10.15 start. Come to the main entrance of Scienceworks and you will be guided through to the SEG space where presentations will take place.

Please consider presenting as well- you might like to think about the past, present or future of education as your prompt. We hope to see you there, and remember that VIT registered teachers can access benefits through the MV Teachers subscription service.
