Welcome to The Darwin Centre

The Darwin Centre for Biology and Medicine is a Pembrokeshire charity established in 1994, it aims to engage and enthuse young people, families, and communities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

There are two elements to the charity: The Education Programme known as the Darwin Experience, and the Research and Engagement Programme.

What do we do?

We deliver hundreds of hands-on field trips and experiential workshops, engaging over 3000 participants every year. The flagship programme is the Dragon LNG Darwin Experience, which has been running since 2005 and has worked with over 30,000 individuals. Every school in Pembrokeshire has access to free field trips and workshops every year; on themes such as rocky shores, climate change, marine litter, forces, and renewable energy.

Dozens of family and public events each year run alongside the schools programme, including our increasingly popular Science Café events. Topics have included: Sea Level Rise, Biometeorology, Evolution, and Exploring the Universe.
