The Big Pit National Coal Museum is an excellent example of the recovery of abandoned industrial areas. Thanks to this museum the workers of this ancient coal mine, now closed for years, have been able to keep a decent work.
Subjects of the Sustainibility: 8-10-11
The museum provides an underground tour. The route runs 100 meters underground. Only by visiting these places is it possible to understand how the life of coal miners was.
An award-winning national museum that still retains many features of its former life as a coal mine, standing high on the heather-clad moors of Blaenafon, the tunnels and buildings that once echoed to the sound of the miners now enjoy the sound of the footsteps and chatter of visitors from all over the world.

Describe the activity
The project was intended to expose the students to science and its research method throughout a task oriented and guided practice teaching approach. The on-site visits on the coast line, for inspection, detection and sample survey and collection, aimed to learn more about the oyster reproductive cycle (Ostrea Edulis).
Considering the local oyster farming cultural and historical roots, the oyster spat collection, the growing cycle, the organisms set aside, the morphometric evaluations and the environmental assessment were the main activities developed on the matter.
