The Great Exhibition of the North! Event, Competition & Resources
The Great Exhibition of the North will highlight the dynamic story of the North of England- how its innovators, artists and designers shaped our present and are inspiring our future!
The content and schools offer will align with the themes of the 3 walking routes through the city (Innovation, Art, Design) and the schools’ offer will be strongly linked to STEAM, highlighting how creativity and invention is used within STEM.
The Great Exhibition of the North is coming, save the date!
The Great Exhibition of the North 2018 is a once in a lifetime opportunity to show your young people how the North is shaping their present and can inspire their future. Newcastle Gateshead will be the canvas to display this and you and your class can explore 3 themed walking routes- innovation, arts and design.
More details will be coming soon, with the full programme announced in Spring 2018. Just to give you a little taster, Stephenson’s Rocket will be returning to the city in which it was built, along with Helen Sharman’s spacesuit and John Lennon’s piano so there’s plenty to get your students excited!
Visit the Exhibition- 22nd June 2018 – 9th September 2018
A fantastic opportunity for individuals, STEM classes or STEM Clubs!
Prize for schools- £500 of art supplies and photos could be featured in Great Exhibition of the North promotional materials. Competition themes include Northern Culture, Cityscape/ Landscape, My Innovative North & Art and Design.
Super Charged Teaching Resources – coming soon!
A resource pack per key stage, per theme, (18 packs in total) will be created for the Great Exhibition with links to multiple curricula. These will be able to be used by teachers either in preparation for a visit, but they will be equally useful to use to support lessons using the North as the inspiration.
