In March this year, SAMARCH featured at the Family Science Fair at the Dorset Museum in Dorchester as part of British Science Week. Genoveva Esteban, Katie Thompson and students from Bournemouth University ran interactive activities on the life cycle of Atlantic salmon and showed participants how to determine the age of a fish! There was a fantastic turnout and involvement (interaction with >1,000 people!) from all visitors. If you want to know more or take part in next year’s event, please email Genoveva on firstname.lastname@example.org or Katie on email@example.com. Don’t forget to visit the SAMARCH website for more details on the EU Interreg project!
We are excited to announce that on Sunday 13th March 2022 we will be hosting the second Family Science Fair in Dorchester. We are delighted to be able to host our first in person event in Dorchester since 2019, and we can’t wait to show you what we have planned.
Come and join us and talk to real scientists! There will be a range of interactive activities for all the family to get involved in. This includes host stands looking at microscopic life, wildlife conservation, electrical brain activities, local natural history and much more.
A free event, aimed at children aged 4 plus, but with something for people of all ages to enjoy. Everyone is welcome.
We will be running two slots: 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm. Booking is essential for both events. For more information visit dorsetmuseum.org/event/family-science-fair

Researchers hosted a landowners event at The River Laboratory in Dorchester. This event aimed to inform the landowners about the progress of research on the Atlantic Salmon project, and give them the opportunity to directly see what is involved. A fantastic day was had by all!
To celebrate World Ocean Day, High School students from Thomas Hardye School participated in a River Ecology Workshop at The River Laboratory in Dorchester. The students learnt about the importance of freshwater ecosystems and Atlantic Salmon Conservation. It was fantastic to see the students getting invovled!
