Power UPThis Easter the Science Museum presents gaming extravaganza Power UP. Returning for its third year, the hands-on event invites gaming fans to get their fix with 180 systems and hundreds of games, including video games, computers and consoles from the past four decades. From Pong and Pacman to Minecraft and Mario, there's something for everyone. With PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch sitting alongside SNES, SEGA Dreamcast and BBC Micro - the original educational computer - visitors will be able to see how technology has evolved, with PlayStation VR providing a glimpse into the possibilities of the future.
