With exciting new hands-on displays demonstrating wind and solar power, historical science and engineering objects and even a cross sectioned electric NISSAN Leaf car on display, Steam to Green will showcase how the North East is leading the way in green energy.

The exhibition was created in partnership with Newcastle University.
