Life cycle of a turtle display.
Busy researching.
Model making.
Designing activities.

Ten young people gave up four days of their summer holidays to help make our whale and turtle displays more family-friendly.

They signed up to the challenge through Cardiff’s Summer Learning Festival, which invites 12-15 year olds to learn new skills in their spare time. They learned how to evaluate and exhibition, pick a good story, write interesting text and select objects to make a family friendly display.

In just four days, they created new displays and quizzes for families to enjoy. Their work is on display throughtout the summer holidays and has proved to be very popular! Come and see their work for yourself in the Whale gallery at the National Museum Cardiff.
