Hidden Heroes

Hidden Heroes is an exhibition at the Science Museum which celebrates the genius of everyday objects which we may take for granted. Since the exhibition opened it has opened our eyes to how much we use these objects in both day to day tasks and for more creative outputs. This board is a collection of the new uses we keep discovering for these everyday objects. Find out more about the exhibition: http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/hiddenheroes
