Secondary & Post-16 — at your school

Techniquest’s learning initiatives are not just confined to our centre in Cardiff Bay — why not book a Techniquest visit at your school?

Techniquest offers a unique range of challenge workshops, which are designed to encourage students studying Maths and Science at all stages of secondary education. The flexibility of presenters allows schools to use Techniquest sessions as an introduction to a new topic, or to build on the knowledge that students already have.

Techniquest’s outreach shows and workshops have been developed in line with the Curriculum for Wales. Online resources accompany the outreach sessions to provide extended information for teachers and to encourage further learning.

For information on costs of Techniquest programmes delivered at your school please ring 029 2047 5475 or email us.

Key Stage 3

Challenge workshops

Techniquest’s challenge workshops allow students to explore specific aspects of Applied Engineering, Maths, Technology and Science, through practical challenges set by Techniquest presenters. Students are introduced to the topic in a presenter-led discussion, and then encouraged to develop teamwork and co-operation skills through discussion and debate. After the completion of each challenge, students regroup in order to reflect on what they have learnt during the session, evaluating reasons for successes and failures, as well as suggesting improvements.

Each session is designed to increase students’ awareness of the broad range of careers available within Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
