Technicians: The David Sainsbury Gallery
Designed by JAC Studios, Technicians: The David Sainsbury Gallery is a first-of-its-kind interactive gallery seeking to change perceptions of technical careers and inspire tomorrow’s technicians.
Funded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, the gallery, aimed at 11 to 16-year-olds, will help address the urgent need for 800,000 additional technicians and apprentices across the STEM sector and provide vital careers education for young people.
Featuring a wide variety of technician roles, visitors will be able to try out the tasks technicians perform, explore where technicians work, hear their extraordinary stories and meet real-life technicians who will lead special activities within the space for families and schools. Unique interactive exhibits include operating a manufacturing robot, fixing a wind turbine fault, analysing medicines in a laboratory and Shuri's Lab from Marvel Studios' Black Panther to control the replica film set lighting, visual effects and sound.
