This has been our third year and we are looking forward to next years’ event. We would like to give a special thanks to Sian Jones, Events and Engagement Officer and all the staff of the National Waterfront Museum, and 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.
