New Science Park signs
Published: 8 October 2019
Exeter Science Park just got more colourful with the installation of these striking new designs by local graphic designer Aylwyn Bowen.
Aylwyn’s designs are well known to people in the city centre, were a series of his eye-caching works have been sited in prominent locations.
The three new designs at the Science Park feature scientists Hedy Lamarr, Sir Isaac Newton and Alan Turing.
In 2018 the Science Park ran a competition for local schools to name its Grow-on Buildings. After receiving a booklet with information on seven shortlisted scientists, students were asked to write a short essay on their three favourites – one for each of the buildings.
CEO Dr Sally Basker judged the entries, and the essays by nine-year-old Amalie from Cranbrook Education Campus were chosen – she selected Lamarr, Newton and Turing.
The three scientists are known for having broken boundaries and challenged thinking to make remarkable discoveries and advancements.
It is hoped the new signs will act as inspiration to scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and medical professionals both visiting and working at the Science Park
