What's on

Star Wars Day


Sat 4 May 2019


All Day


May the fourth be with you!

Celebrate Star Wars Day with Techniquest where the force is strong.

Can you resist the pull of the dark side when you meet Darth Vader and his stormtrooper, or will you go to the light and say hello to R2D2?

Launch rockets from our west terrace, discover the science behind the movies and use the force in our Mindflex zone to navigate objects through an obstacle course.

  • Use the force to guide a ball through an obstacle course
  • Build and launch your own rocket
  • Delve into the science that drove the production of the films in ‘The Science of Star Wars’
  • Make-and-take your favourite characters using Cubefold designs
  • Watch a screening of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in the Science Theatre
  • Meet Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper
  • See life-size models of R2D2 and R5D4

May the force be with you.

  •   What is Techniquest?

    Techniquest is an educational charity, with a science centre in Cardiff Bay. Our mission is to embed science in Welsh culture through interactive engagement. We provide a range of services to schools and teachers to complement formal education provision in Wales and work extensively with public audiences.

  •   Where can I park?

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We have agreed a special discount rate for our customers of 15% off all pre-bookings.
    Pre-book and guarantee your space here using the code TECHNI15.

    There are also nearby pay-and-display car parks on Stuart Street and Havannah Street. Please do not park on Havannah Street itself.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.

  •   Who is it for?

    Techniquest is suitable for all ages! We do have special events for certain groups, however — see Toddler Days and Home Educator days.

  • I have a different question.

    Please see our dedicated FAQ page.
