STEM field trips & workshops
The Darwin Centre for Biology and Medicine was founded by Biochemist, Professor Tony Campbell CBE in 1993 and registered as a charity in 1994. In 1999 the charity relocated to Pembrokeshire where it remains to this day. The Darwin Centre aims to engage and enthuse young people and communities in STEM subjects through hands on field trips and workshops, from rock pooling to theoretical nuclear physics. The charity raises aspirations through opening up access to experts within the STEM industry and highlights potential careers available to the young people of Pembrokeshire.
About Our Events
We deliver hundreds of hands-on field trips and experiential workshops, engaging over 4000 participants each academic year. The flagship programme is the Dragon LNG Darwin Experience, which has been running since 2005 and has worked with over 60,000 individuals. Thanks to our core sponsorship from Dragon LNG, every school in Pembrokeshire has access to free field trips and workshops. We are also supported by Pembrokeshire College who kindly host us and Pembrokeshire County Council.
During the school holidays we run a series of events for families, home educators, public and the scouting association which include marine biology days, geology walks, pond dipping and public lectures.
