The Science Museum in London has opened a captivating exhibition called 'Engineers', dedicated to showcasing world-changing engineering innovations and the remarkable individuals behind them.

With over 70 exhibits ranging from James Watt's kettle to a surgical robot arm, this gallery aims to challenge misconceptions about engineering and inspire young future engineers.

Speaking at the opening ceremony on International Women in Engineering Day, Hayaatun Sillem, CEO of the Royal Academy of Engineering, emphasised the importance of having an engineering profession that reflects society.

The gallery provides an opportunity for young visitors to witness the impact of engineers, experience being an engineer, and understand their motivations and processes.

The 'Engineers' gallery breaks away from traditional divisions by focusing on four themes—bodies, lives, connections, and creating. It highlights the collaborative nature of engineering and showcases its diverse applications.

Unlike other galleries in the Science Museum, 'Engineers' puts a strong emphasis on the individuals behind engineering rather than just the objects. By showcasing the human aspect of engineering, the exhibition aims to engage visitors personally and spark their curiosity.

The 'Engineers' gallery at the Science Museum challenges stereotypes, promotes diversity in engineering, and inspires the next generation of innovators. Through interactive displays and engaging narratives, it invites visitors to explore the fascinating world of engineers and their groundbreaking achievements.
