It's 1885 and the Salford-based inventor, Hans Renold, is working on the invention of his bush roller chain, a device that will change the world. We test inventions in his workshop, learning how to transfer motion and the forces involved.

When Hans is challenged to a Penny Farthing race, he has to work out how to adapt the Penny Farthing to create a new, quicker type of bicycle, with a little help from his friend, the engineer J K Starley, and the children of course. Now, if only we had a chain to link the Penny Farthing's wheels...

The children in Sapphire Class helped Hans Reynolds with his invention during our role play activity 'Inventors Wanted.' They explored the museum and they were encouraged to 'Experiment.'
