We had a fantastic time last week celebrating British Science Week with partners at the Dragon LNG Darwin Experience. What’s more, at the end of the week, 164 of the year 8 pupils said the workshops encouraged them to think about a career in science and technology!

Haverfordwest High pupils attended the event, along with a host of organisations keen to highlight the wealth of opportunities our coast offers.

Pupils enjoyed a series of engaging and informative workshops and talks from a range of organisations, such as:

  • Car-Y-Mor, the first commercial seaweed and Shellfish farm in Wales.
  • Milford Haven Energy Kingdom showcased their hydrogen car.
  • Puffin Produce showcased Root Zero – the UK’s first carbon neutral potato.
  • Gwynt Glas spoke about their wind farm project in the Celtic Sea.
  • Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm showed their collection of exotic insects as an alternative protein source.
  • Dr Mark Smith spoke about nuclear fusion as an alternative energy source.

The Dragon LNG Darwin Experience will be continuing these events throughout June and July as part of their work with Key Stage 3.

We, at Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, work with partners across Pembrokeshire to bring together knowledge and opportunities to make the most of what our coast offers, whilst protecting the wildlife and landscape that we all enjoy.
