If you have watched or read the news, have we nothing better to waste money on.

This is all about inspiring young people to go for a career in engineering. This country needs more engineers.

That should read: to go for a career in engineering or science. This country needs more engineers and scientists.

Interesting: They are playing the made up sounds on something similar to an Edison wax cylinder!

The Science Museum is a national asset. It is well managed and a source of inspiration for children who might have an aptitude for science. Money spent in this way is certainly not wasted - that's a very short-sighted attitude.

I am all in favour of inspiring young people. If that is an example of what science can achieve it may hopefully inspire the to become doctors (of Medicine) which we are also short of.
