Visitors will see the technological revolution over the past 40 years first-hand and will also be given the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities including virtual reality gaming, 3D-printing, state-of-the-art robotics and interactive media.

The day aims to inspire and excite visitors through a variety of zones, activities and exhibitions led by academic experts from the University of Lincoln, including the return of Visiting Lecturer and Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury.
