London Transport Museum’s Year of Engineering 2018 was part of a government-led campaign to raise the profile of engineering amongst 7 to 16 year olds and to encourage young people to consider a career in engineering. The campaign was run by the Museum in partnership with Transport for London and the Department for Transport to inspire more children so that they realise the opportunities that the profession can offer them.

Object of the Month

Country walks were marketed as a healthy antidote to a week spent in an office or factory. This embroidery of a young couple enjoying a picnic was created for a poster to encourage people to get out and about.
