Have you planned your science and maths programme for the Summer Term? Techniquest can help with a range of topics and skills available at its main centre in Cardiff Bay - or through bringing activities to your school!
School visits to Techniquest are so well organised that teachers can simply focus on the learning experience; upon arrival, Techniquest staff explain the logistics of the visit to make sure the day runs smoothly.
Spectacular demonstrations help bring science to life in a range of shows for KS2 pupils. Each show supports the KS2 Curriculum for Wales.
After a lively presentation in the Science Theatre, pupils take what they’ve learnt out onto the main exhibition floor for a session of self-directed learning and discovery. The pupils are armed with a series of key words and phrases about the topic, to help them decide which of the 120 interactive exhibits they should explore first.
Shows: The Light Show 1-4 May, The Human Body Show 8-10, 15-18 May, Materials 22-25 May, Flash, Bang, Wallop 17-20 July
For Foundation Phase, there’s a BRAND NEW spectacular series of programmes, each covering the seven areas of learning. The programme consists of a show, time on Techniquest’s exhibition floor, plus pre- and post- visit materials.
Choose from: Fairy Tales 29-31 May, or At The Seaside 10-13 July
For Foundation phase and KS2 teachers are provided with digital cameras to record their pupils’ activities on the exhibition floor. Techniquest downloads these images onto a memory stick – which includes resource materials – to facilitate further learning linked to the visit back in the classroom.
