Students can explore the future of electricity generation that is developing right here in the North East.
Design and build electrical circuits to light up our lab.
Did you know that Newcastle was one of the first places in the world to have electric streetlights? That streetlights used to be switched on and off by policemen? That today the North East is a centre of innovation in environmentally friendly electricity generation?
Try your hand at designing and building electrical circuits to light up our lab. Discover how switches and light detectors are used to control Newcastle’s streetlights. Explore the future of electricity generation that is developing right here in the Northeast.
This workshop isn’t available between 13 November – 22 December 2023. See details of our alternative seasonal workshops during this period.
