The Brunel 200 celebrations officially ended in September 2006 but much of the on-line resources created for the programme will still be of value to schools.
On the main Brunel 200 website you will find background information on Brunel's life and work, his major projects (Thames Tunnel, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Great Western Railway, ss Great Britain, ss Great Eastern), the Brunel archive at the University of Bristol, Brunel's colleagues and contemporaries, the Industrial Revolution, nineteenth-century social and political change, and arts and culture. There is also an extensive list of books, websites and other resources relating to Brunel.
On this Education and Learning website are teaching materials on Brunel produced by schools and other education providers, information on visits to Brunel-linked sites and Brunel-related workshops, and examples of work produced as part of the Brunel 200 programme.
Although this site will remain viewable for the foreseeable future, the content will not be updated after November 2006. Further examples of Brunel educational work will be included in the evaluation material that will be added to the Brunel 200 website in 2007.
We hope you find the resources here of value and that you and your pupils will continue to be inspired by Brunel.
