All KS2 programmes support the teaching of the Curriculum for Wales, encouraging skills development and learning through investigation, discussion and collaboration.
After a lively 30-minute presentation in the Science Theatre or Planetarium, pupils take what they have learnt onto the exhibition floor for a session of self-directed learning and discovery. Pupils are armed with a series of key words and phrases that link to the topics of their show, to help them to decide which of the 120 interactive exhibits are most relevant.
All Techniquest’s hands-on exhibits encourage self-directed learning.
Teachers are provided with digital cameras to record their pupils’ experiences. Techniquest downloads these images onto a memory stick – which includes resource materials to extend the learning experience.
