Pupils support new train station design using Minecraft


Pupils from Milford Haven have redesigned the new train station in a Minecraft world, in the hopes of inspiring the council’s new real-life design.

We have been working with Milford Haven Comprehensive School and Pembrokeshire Council to challenge pupils to design and build the town’s new train station in Minecraft. Pupils were asked to think about the future of their local area, taking sustainability, accessibility and usability of the station into consideration. The winning designs be will used to inform proposals for the station which are being progressed by Pembrokeshire Council and Atkins.

The real-life train station is currently only a small shelter, but the local council are set to start building a new station later this year.

Here are some examples of the pupils’ models:

This follows the success of our recent Craft My City competition in collaboration with Cardiff Council, where pupils were asked to share their visions for the space outside Cardiff Museum using Minecraft.
