Would you like to help the wider public understand more about how engineering shapes the world and changes lives?
Then look no further than the Great Northern Engineering Experience!
Taking place at the Mining Institute on Neville Road in Newcastle, from June 23 to September 9, the exhibition is a fantastic showcase of engineering in the North.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who have a passion for all things engineering who are happy to engage with the public and help coordinate and monitor the exhibition.

Date: between early June to mid-July, to be confirmed.
The Manchester Retired Members Group are currently planning an engineering trip to North Wales to visit two hydro plants and an engineering visit to the Welsh Highland Ffestiniog railway workshops including a 20 mile ride on one of their Garret Locomotives. The visit will be over two days and will be possibly early June through to mid-July ... Dates, costings and details are currently being arranged and the visits will take place on a Friday & Saturday with limited places being available.
The Power plants are at Bethesda ( adjacent to the Zip Wire Centre ) 100kW output mini-hydro site and the underground Dinorwig Pumped Storage plant at Llanberis, 2GW output.
The Welsh Highland & Ffestiniog Railway workshops are based at Dinas ( near Caernarfon ) and Boston Lodge , PorthMadog
Transport and accommodation will not be provided but group lunches on both days can be included. Preference will be given to those who can attend both days but we will consider individual separate day visits if there are insufficient numbers for the two day visit.
