Our World In Motion

This week is National Science & Engineering Week, and to mark the occasion the Library is hosting a special exhibition celebrating this year’s theme, ‘Our World In Motion’.

No, don’t worry, it’s got nothing to do with a certain dodgy World Cup football song of 1990’s yore! The display celebrates the invention and innovation in applications of human movement from human powered forms of transport, through leisure and recreational activities to new devices which convert human effort into power in a sustainable way, illustrating not only human movement in all its diverse forms and some of the methods developed over the years for recording it, but how human movement can be used to power a variety of devices from simple hand pumps to human-powered aircraft capable of sustained flight.
