Technicians: Science Museum announces Marvel among the partners for its new gallery 6 Jun 2022

The Science Museum has announced that movie makers Marvel Studios will be one of four partners working with it on its new gallery ‘Technicians: The David Sainsbury Gallery’ which is opening in November. It will also be collaborating with the NHS, National Grid and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre to show the vast range of jobs that technicians perform. Around 1.5m people work as technicians in the UK, with careers spanning archaeology, veterinary nursing and welding – but the roles are often poorly understood by the public, meaning that too few young people aspire to follow this career path. Part of the new gallery will be a reconstruction of Shuri’s Lab from the film ‘Black Panther’, where visitors can re-enact the role of film set lighting technician. Other jobs featured include technicians who make bespoke drugs for patients, operate wind turbines or pilot remotely operated vehicles on the floor of the ocean. Education groups can already book ahead to visit the gallery from November 3rd. Evening Standard, M+H, Science Museum
