Inspiring Technology

Use Geevor Tin Mine as an historical inspiration for Design & Technology projects back at school

At Geevor, we have a range of machines in situ; compressed air generators, steam & electric winders, waterwheel, electricity sub-station, and various machinery such as stamps, drills, locomotives on rails and a working shaking table.

The site is capable of demonstrating technological change over time, from people-powered tools to pneumatic systems, with even a real-life case of potential renewable energy plant on site.

There's a lot of potential work areas for site-based projects, and we also have ex-miners and engineers available to produce prototypes and give assistance and expertise.

Please refer to the downloads on the right to see some ideas for Technology projects inspired by Geevor.
