The 2007 Darwin Science Aglow Festival has again helped children to celebrate their discoveries. As well as the informative workshops, displays and schools investigations this year's festival included a motivational speech by Monty Halls, author, explorer, TV presenter and film-maker.

Children in Pembrokeshire were able to view other schools' investigations, and question each other about their work.

This was followed by the CREST judges viewing the displays and interviewing children, a process that is totally unscripted and relies upon the children's knowledge and experience.

The Bronze CREST award is one that all pupils are rightly proud to receive.

Once again teachers and the Darwin Centre have ensured that children have seen and witnessed science in its rightful context.
