Electricity: The Spark of Life Exhibition

The story of electricity is the story of life itself. Within every object on earth is hidden either a positive or negative electric charge - from the structure of the atom to the functioning of our brains, the natural power of electricity is all around and one of the most potent symbols of the modern world.

This exhibit will cover the use of electricity in the home, and demonstrate how this freed up women to enter the work place.  Former WES President Caroline Haslett was a pioneer in this area.

This exhibit takes place at the Welcome Collection
183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, UK

International Women in Engineering Day has developed from a national, into an International awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering and focus attention on the amazing career opportunities available to girls in this exciting industry. It takes place annually on 23 June. It's your day so get involved. In 2017 we will be celebrating INWED for the fourth year - and the first year that it has become truly international.
