Call for Technology Items

Next term, we are excited to be working with the History of Science Museum on an exciting project to create some new technology displays in our new cabinets on the first floor of the Lane Building.

We already have a small collection of technology items in our Technology through Time Collection. In order to develop our collections, we are calling for members of the wider community to loan or donate items to our collections.

We plan to work with Year Nine History students to explore both our own artefacts and ones which we are donated from the local community, and to create displays which narrate the stories of these objects in a way which connect with lots of strands of the school curriculum, from history and culture, to design and economy.

We plan to work with Chris Parkin, Learning Officer from the History of Science Museum, who will run a series of workshops with the students to introduce the themes and objects, and then work closely to co-curate a set of displays about the objects which will be accessible, engaging, and relevant to the lives and experiences of the 1700 students who visit the school site each day, as well as for the wider community of parents, staff, and visitors.

We are interested in any sort of technical item from any era, right up to present day, so if you have anything you'd be happy to loan or donate, please get in touch on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
