Unique experience

Techniquest provides a unique experience — supporting teachers and inspiring pupils from Foundation Phase to Post-16 in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — at our Science Discovery Centre in Cardiff Bay and through a broad and dynamic Outreach programme, which can bring the Techniquest experience to your school.

 

Two floors of hands-on exhibits

At Techniquest in Cardiff Bay, there are two floors full of hands-on exhibits, which are ideal for child-centred learning and investigation.

Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 pupils who visit Techniquest can also attend an interactive show in the Science Theatre, or visit Techniquest’s digital Planetarium, where they will be inspired by a view of the night sky. Key Stage 2 and secondary pupils can also take part in a series of workshops in the Laboratory, which allows pupils to gain hands-on practical experience.

All programmes are linked to the Curriculum for Wales. Teachers receive resource materials to help them extend the learning back in the classroom.

School visits 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.

Areas can be reserved for pupils to have packed lunches.

If you are a teacher who has already booked a trip to Techniquest, and you would like to see the facility ahead of your visit, we are happy to accommodate this free of charge. Please call our bookings team on 029 2047 5475 to arrange this.
