Jacobs and London Transport Museum have teamed up with other partners to launch a new interactive Future Engineers gallery. The new gallery, which opened last month, aims to inspire an interest in STEM subjects and highlight the creativity, social value and sheer range of jobs available in engineering and related careers.
Jacobs worked with the museum to create the 'Shape Your City' exhibit, which lets visitors play an interactive table-top game as they race against the clock to create a healthy and well-connected sustainable city. This urban planning jigsaw invites visitors to interact with different parts of the city such as housing, stations, green spaces and landmarks and to make them work together to create a successful city.
"The 'Shape Your City' exhibit encourages visitors to experiment with key elements needed to make a city like London greener, happier and better connected," said Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Europe Senior Vice President and General Manager Donald Morrison. "These are exactly the city and transport conundrums our engineers, designers and digital solutions experts are tackling every day. We hope the new gallery will foster learning and curiosity among our future talent and create a truly innovative and engaging experience for the next generation of creators."
Sam Mullins, Director of London Transport Museum, added: "The future London will be shaped by engineers; our new gallery asks how much of a dreamer, planner or fixer you are, creating a fresh view of the skills and mindsets needed to make a career as an engineer."< Back to News & Media
