Treasure Hunters: Year of Engineering special

We have teamed up with Year of Engineering to introduce a new set of engineering themed challenges in our object hunt app, Treasure Hunters.



Year of Engineering is a government campaign, aimed at celebrating the world and wonder of engineering with young people and getting them excited about the industry.

Over the next few weeks the Science Museum Group will have a number of events to celebrate the Year of Engineering across all our sites, and we felt that the app would be a great place to help build those important, informal connections with science and engineering.

Treasure Hunters inspires young people to link the objects in our museums and beyond to their everyday lives. We hope to demystify the world of engineering and make it accessible – especially to those who might not have considered it as a career.


Treasure Hunters is available on the App Store and Google Play. Simply download the app to your smartphone or tablet, set your players and location and then you’ll be able to select Year of Engineering. Then, all you need to do is get hunting!


Treasure Hunters is just one way to take part in the Year of Engineering celebrations. Our museums are also hosting activities and events throughout the rest of 2018. To find out what’s happening near you, explore our museums’ pages:
