See How They Run

Spend the day watching what happens when we power up our mighty machines.  In line with this year’s Science Week theme of growth, come and see the machines which helped the coal mining industry expand, enabling the mines to meet the increasing demand for coal.  Enter our competition looking at how mines might be used in the future to grow plants to meet rising food needs in a post-industrial landscape.

You can have a go at making your own mechanical toy in Caphouse Creators, learn how rising explosive gas levels are detected in our captivating Science Show, try your hand at planting an underground farm in the Makers’ Shed and see how our might machines run at Hope Pit.
