The 150 show - celebrating our 150th anniversary

We wanted to use our anniversary to celebrate engineering with the rest of the world, so we created The 150 Show – a week of one-hour magazine style programmes!

Hosted by our President, Professor Danielle George, and co-host, each programme explored a range of interesting topics such as the future of medicine, sustainability in fashion, women in STEM, our digital future and much more.

From Carol Vorderman in the People Edition, to astronaut Tim Peake and YouTuber, Mark Rober during the Youth Edition, and Eastenders star David Proud, in our Health Edition – we got to hear from so many inspirational guests!

But not only that, The 150 Show was also packed with exciting experiments you could do at home bought to you by our Youth STEM Personality of the Year winner – Callum Daniel. As well as a bakineering segment with Great British Bake Off finalist – Andrew Smyth, who took on a different type of technical challenge.

The Digital Edition

Technology has a huge role to play in shaping our future. The pace of technological change has increased so quickly that one decade’s must-have gadget can become obsolete the next. So, what will tomorrow’s world look like? That’s what we explored during this episode of The 150 Show!
