Find out what’s in the pipeline for Techniquest.
At Techniquest, we want to grow people’s science capital. By growing science capital in individuals and the communities of Wales, we can help more people to see science as an important part of their lives and culture, which will help broaden opportunities and access for STEM-related jobs in the future.
We have plans to radically transform our science discovery centre in Cardiff Bay. The project, called The Science Capital, encompasses an extension of our current building on Stuart Street and a repositioning exercise to extend and diversify our audiences.
The proposed extension will almost double Techniquest’s footprint, providing an additional 70% of exhibition space to house brand new innovative content related to, and developed with, Welsh STEM innovators, academics and communities.
The content will explore — through exhibitions and programming — how STEM and innovative technologies are shaping the future of our society.
