Baroness Delyth Morgan, Minister for Intellectual Property has announced that Wallace and Gromit will be at the Science Museum, London in a new exhibition designed to inspire and assist British Inventors.
This £2m exhibition is scheduled to open in spring 2009. The exhibits will be themed around Wallace and Gromit’s home and will consist of interactive exhibits, creative activities and animated displays. A section of the exhibition will cover intellectual property, how to protect it, how to maximise it and to encourage respect for others IP.
Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit said:
“Inventiveness has always been central to Wallace’s character and I have sketch books full of Wallace’s eccentric inventions that have never made it to the screen. It is fantastic that Wallace & Gromit can excite young kids about innovation in this way.”
