Technicians: The David Sainsbury Gallery—School Info

Step into the fascinating world of Technicians for a peek behind the scenes in our brand new interactive gallery for KS3 and KS4. Opening in autumn 2022.

Experience what it’s like to create visual effects on a blockbuster film set, analyse blood samples in a medical laboratory, operate a robot in a manufacturers workshop, fix a fault atop a wind turbine and much more.

Recreating the workplaces of technicians across multiple sectors – health science, creative arts, manufacturing and renewable energy – students will get hands-on with interactive exhibits that simulate job-related tasks.

A programme of special schools events will also let students meet real-life technicians and discover the skills needed to work in their industries.

Start planning the ultimate STEAM careers school trip.

A visit could also support in meeting Gatsby’s Good Career Guidance benchmarks by providing opportunities to experience workplace environments and encounter employers and employees.
