Our Past, Your Future was an ambitious project to map the North of Tyne’s unique and rich heritage of industry and innovation. The project delivered targeted schools and community-based activities to help foster the career aspirations of our young people in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Explore the entries on the interactive map above and find out more about the people places and objects that have shaped the development of science and industry from pre-history to the modern day.
The map is constantly evolving and is being co-created alongside individuals, communities, companies and schools. We need your help to make sure that the map highlights as many great and diverse people, places and objects from our region.
