Visit SS Great Britain this summer, where Brunel is looking for his next apprentice. Grab an engineer’s satchel, filled with all the tools you’ll need, and enjoy exciting activities in the dockyard and onboard the ship. Explore the SS Great Britain, solve problems and learn the variety of skills that make a great engineer. Discover more about engineering in the amazing summer science show Brunel: Building the Impossible. Hosted by Mr Brunel himself, the performance will be filled with fascinating facts and daring demonstrations, celebrating 2018’s Year of Engineering. Apprentices young and old, from primary school age to adults, will be inspired by SS Great Britain and the extraordinary man who made her. Performances will run three times a day, every day between 23 July – 3 September. Brunel: Building the Impossible lasts 20-30 minutes and is included in the price of admission.
