Marconi's Legacy – Past ideas inspiring future solutions
This special day is one of a series of events taking place to celebrate Essex 2020: a Year of Science and Creativity.
Embark on a journey! Start at the birth of Marconi; follow through his life's work and on to the company he gave his name to. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of Dame Nellie Melba's radio broadcast from Marconi's New Street factory and much has changed since then. Take a look at some of the modern technologies that were set in motion by Marconi's pioneering work.
This FREE exhibition will give a great blend of old and new, intended to inspire pride in Essex's past, and confidence in its future.
Leonardo from Basildon (a former Marconi Company) will be presenting at this exhibition in partnership with CSES and Chelmsford Civic Society.
