School Membership Scheme
Welcome to Techniquest’s School Membership Scheme, designed to give primary school pupils in Wales a new way to experience the wonder of a visit to our centre in Cardiff Bay, to be inspired by what they discover and motivated to learn more.
Membership is available for a one-off fee of just £200 (+VAT) per school, enabling pupils to visit FREE for 12 months.
From star gazing in Wales’ only digital Planetarium, or exploring forces in the Science Theatre, to seeing Santa at the Christmas show, it will be easier for members to visit to Techniquest and take advantage of the inspiring educational experiences we offer.
What do schools receive if they become members?
All registered pupils at Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 will have free admission to all Science Theatre Shows, Planetarium Shows and the Exhibition at Techniquest in Cardiff, for 12 months from enrolment. All programmes are bookable on a first-come-first-served basis.
Grants Available for Schools in Merthyr Tydfil and RCT
The Edina Trust is inviting primaries in Merthyr Tydfil and RCT to apply for a grant for a science project or projects, that could cover the cost of the School Membership Scheme. For more information, please see www.edinatrust.org.uk.
Which schools are eligible for membership?
All maintained primary schools in Wales are eligible.
Special schools with pupils at Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 level are also eligible for this group of pupils only.
What if a school isn’t eligible or decides the scheme isn’t suitable for them?
Schools that aren’t part of the scheme can still visit Techniquest in Cardiff Bay and receive our At Your School outreach services as at present.
Are outreach services free to members of the scheme?
Members will receive more special offers on Techniquest’s outreach services from time to time. Other services continue to be available to all schools.
