Where: Marconi Building, Anglia Ruskin University, Bishop Hall Lane, Chelmsford, CM1 1SQ

Hours: 11:00 to 16:00 on each day the exhibition is open

This special exhibition will showcase artefacts of scientific and technological innovation from the last 100 years. This is not just about the past – there will also be forward looking displays sponsored by Leonardo and Teledyne e2v. Today, companies in Chelmsford continue to build the technology of the future, with high-tech developments in fields as diverse as space, medicine, communications, and defence. The impact of industry in Chelmsford on all of our lives is incredible. This exhibition will tell at least a part of that story, revealing how household names such as Marconi are echoed in the modern age.
