Home educators

Techniquest provides opportunities for Home Educators to visit Techniquest during term time.

These include visits to the Planetarium, taking part in a workshop in the Laboratory, or to see a Science Theatre show.

During weekends and school holidays an informal education programme for all the family is on offer, with the exception of special events such as Toddler Days. These events cannot be pre-booked, and normal admission charges apply.
