28th of July 2018 – IGM at the Great Exhibition of the North

Great Exhibition of the North was an event that held for six weeks across Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, next year. The exhibition was a celebration of the art, design and innovation that has originated from the region and has influenced the wider world. The main exhibition was housed in the Great North Museum Hancock and included a display of ‘wow’ objects that have been loaned from national and international sources. The work of the Institute of Genetic Medicine was one of the stories at the exhibition. We were there on Saturday the 28th of July 11am-3pm showing simple experiments, share interesting stories that make you go ‘wow’.


We had 100-150 visitors and lots of interesting discussions. We thoroughly enjoyed the “Meet the scientist” dayand hope that our visitors did too!

Here are some photos from the day:
