Come along to for this family friendly event to experiment with hands on activities that explore steam engines. Visitors will get the chance to try out augmented reality concepts and a paper-craft activity that encourages tinkering and playfulness.

Steam engines come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and were designed for a variety of different tasks. But almost all have the same five important engine parts – cylinder, crank, flywheel, governor, and belt connection.

Join the University of Salford’s Digital Curation Lab to explore these huge and powerful engines in this family fun day. Your input will also help the Science and Industry Museum to think about the future development of the 'Power Hall', an exhibition of working steam engines due to re-open to the public in 2024.

This event is a drop-in and booking is not required.
