Port of Milford Haven

Waterway Robotics Challenge

The Port of Milford Haven worked with Dark Sky Wales and the Dragon LNG Darwin Experience to run the Waterway Robotics Challenge in 2016.

Year 6 pupils from five schools in the Milford Haven area were asked to build and program robots in order to manoeuvre them around a 3D model of the Waterway and berth at the Valero jetty.

The aim of the project was to raise awareness of the Milford Haven Waterway and build children's knowledge of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

The winning team was from Milford Haven Junior School with their robot 'Fandango'. The school received vouchers towards IT equipment and the pupils were invited to visit the Port's new Simulator Suite which will be officially opened later in the year.
