Book your visit

Friday 24 May 2024

Sustainability is crucial in every aspect of our lives. Metrology, the science of measurement, enables pioneering approaches to a sustainable future, allowing research, innovation, manufacturing, and trade to flourish in the UK.  

To celebrate World Metrology Day we are opening our doors to you. Join us to find out how our scientists and engineers are supporting the UK’s sustainability journey, enabling innovation in everything from carbon capture to climate change solutions, and improving the quality of our everyday lives using measurement science.  

Meet the scientists, engineers and experts who are using underwater cables to detect earthquakes, working on satellites to look at the changes to our earth from space and using metrology to ensure that hydrogen can be a safe, sustainable fuel of the future.    

Take part in interactive activities throughout the day, including making your own gas standard using balloons, meeting our SI bots and much more. 

Come and find out more about metrology!
