Saturday Community Event at Xplore!

September 10th 2021, 1:10 pm by Arran Hodges

Xplore! is holding an event tomorrow at 17:00 to 19:00

Dyfan Graves, Welsh Culture Co-Ordinator said:

“Come along to Cymru Fedrus/ Ingenious Wales, a new exciting event for older children, teens and adults that aim to highlight Wales' remarkable contribution to Science and Technology yesterday, today and tomorrow, and what it means to you. You don't need an interest in science to come, as there will be something for everyone here!

The first half is TOMORROW at 1730. Carwyn Graves (author of "Welsh Apples" and "Welsh Food Stories") will look at what technologies and techniques were used by people in Wales to make and eat good food in often challenging environments and circumstances? And what can we learn today from these varied strategies and traditions - cider-making, shellfish-harvesting, grain-growing, sheep-herding and more?

This is a most timely topic given the prevalence of empty supermarket shelves and climate change in the media. It will be both informative and inspiring!.

And look out for the second half of Cymru Fedrus / Ingenious Wales on the 2nd of October, which will look at what is being done today and into the future to prepare for current challenges to our food supply (such as climate change)

The event is open to all, but is most suitable for adults, teenagers, and older children. Those attending can also enjoy some stalls and exclusive use of the exhibits!
