Your Kids Will Love This Free Exhibition About Fighting Fatbergs

This is a sponsored article on behalf of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The fatbergs are invading London! Fortunately, there are superheroes to save us.

Water: From Source to Tap is a new free exhibition at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). Learn how civil engineers are the unsung heroes of London and beyond — fighting fatbergs and flooding, and saving lives through the provision of clean water and sanitation.

A free exhibition that's fun for all the family (and informative too)

Real-life engineers, past and present, are reimagined as cartoon superhero alter-egos, making this exhibition fun for the kids and the whole family.

See Sir Joseph Bazalgette — pioneer of London's sewer system — become 'Captain Sanitation', a character built from Lego bricks. Then dare to face the Fatberg Monster...

'Don’t Feed the Fatberg' is a key message behind the exhibition. According to their research, a third of Londoners remain unaware of fatbergs, with significant percentages of people flushing fatberg-causing items.

Arrghh! It's the Fatberg Monster!

Featuring educational displays, videos, interactive content, hands-on activities, stories and inspiring examples of water-related projects around the world, the exhibition will appeal to children and young people — as well as anyone who wants to learn more about engineering.

Who knows — maybe your child is one of the engineering heroes of the future.

Water: From Source to Tap is open Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm (excluding bank holidays), at ICE's award-winning Infrastructure Learning Hub at 1 Great George Street, Westminster, SW1P 3AA. The exhibition runs until February 2020, and is free to visit.
