School membership scheme 2019/20School membership scheme

Where else can your pupils fire a doll across the room using a seesaw; launch a water rocket; sit down on a seat of 800 nails and be a space explorer? Techniquest, of course.

Techniquest makes learning STEM subjects exciting, challenging and fun and with our new membership scheme, your primary school can visit free, as many times as you want during the academic year for just £500 (inclusive of VAT).

At £5.00 per child per visit if you don’t have membership, you don’t need to be a maths teacher to see that our membership scheme is extremely good value!

Benefits of membership

  • Unlimited visits to Techniquest from October* 2019 to July 2020;
  • Priority booking for new shows/workshops;
  • One outreach show or workshop for Foundation Phase/KS2 for a quarter of the price** — we guarantee that your pupils will go back to the classroom buzzing!
  • Priority booking for funded outreach;
  • Priority for FREE work-related outreach workshops delivered in conjunction with partners such as Office for National Statistics and GE Aviation
  • We will be developing a suite of new educational programmes over the next 2 years and you will be invited to pilot these (on a first come first served basis)

*Please note that due to the building of our new extension Techniquest will be closed in September 2019, however in the summer term you will have access to our new exciting exhibition.
**£100 for any one outreach show or workshop to attend your school, a maximum of 4 sessions on the day and 30 children per session. Does not include Starlab, Night Lights or Light Fantastic. Normal price £400.

And that’s not all…

This amazing scheme gives every year group from Reception to Year 6 full access to every Science Theatre Show and Planetarium Show, at Techniquest in Cardiff Bay.

Don’t forget, each visit includes time spent on the Exhibition with mind-boggling exhibits across two floors, which we know will inspire and motivate your pupils while they are having fun!
