Wanted: Exhibits for the 'Cambridge Phenomenon' display at the Cambridge Museum of Technology

Museum of Technology

Published: 07th March 2011.

The Cambridge Museum of Technology is using this month's Science Festival to put on an initial exhibition about the high iechnology industries of Cambridge. The museum plans to keep the exhibition open during the summer period and to continually develop the exhibits with feedback/input from visitors and interested parties.


The initial displays at the museum will hopefully include displays, posters and exhibits (photos, documents, products, bits of technology, etc), about:


• The industries that were active around Cambridge in the 1940s, 50s and 60s which acted as a foundation of the subsequent technological boom and source of skilled staff
• The consultancies, large and small that have been built up in the Cambridge area
• Computer related industries, including those in the microcomputer boom
• Computer games industry
• Biotechnology
• Inkjet printing
• Computer Aided Design (CAD)
• Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
• .. and many others.

If you were part of the recent industrial growth of Cambridge either as an inventor/employee/owner/investor, the museum would be very interested to hear from you. In the first instance, please email Dr Peter Long (pjgl2@eng.cam.ac.uk) to let him know what you might be able to lend the museum.

Cambridge Science Festival takes place from 14 – 27 March, during which it celebrates the International Year of Chemistry, as well as lots of other topics from the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Discover the best of science and technology from the University of Cambridge and around the world at over 150 mostly free events over two weeks
