Today was our first visit to the Science and Industry Museum. We toured the exhibits and spoke with Curator Katie Belshaw to discuss the direction our event is going.
Through this discussion we defined the area of research, concentrating on the technological advances of Manchester in the post-war period, and how local companies will be using these in the future. Some interesting areas of research include, The Internet of Things, and Virtual Reality as an explorer of the city.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking in depth at the different strands of technological advances affecting professions in Manchester.
