Activity: It’s all a bit Heath Robinson!

06 - 07 July 2024 10:00 - 18:00 The Royal Society Free

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2024.

Heath Robinson was a British artist and illustrator who was best known for his drawings of humorously overcomplicated gadgets cobbled together out of junk in a long energy transfer chain to achieve a simple or silly task. Join the Heath Robinson Museum to see how complicated a chain reaction you can make to complete a given task.

Heath Robinson Museum has been funded through the Places of science grant scheme.
