It is  Wales’ largest science festival, with a series of themed zones to delight and to educate. Our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat is said to be as unforgettable! 

We returned to The Swansea Science Festival.  Mascot the Robot Dog and our 8 Foot Robot Cat appeared on Sunday 4th November at the National Waterfront Museum. Ethan Gray provided a vital role in the setup and transportation of the robots.

Our stand, as last year, was in the Upper Foyer (Upstairs) area of the National Waterfront Museum. You could not miss us.

It was quite something amazing to see the interest shown by teachers from Primary and Secondary school.

It was our third year, and we are looking forward to next years’ event.

We want to give a special thanks to Sian Jones, Events and Engagement Officer, and all the staff of the National Waterfront Museum.

We are grateful to  Swansea University for all the support, kindness and hospitality they show to us during their event.

It was a privilege to work alongside other scientists and educators.
