Techniquest

You can help us continue to provide science education to some of the hardest to reach schools and communities in Wales.

Techniquest delivers more science education in communities and schools than any other science and discovery centre in the UK. We inspire children and young people to continue with their education and take up careers in STEM – and we inspire adults to think about science differently.

But we can’t do this without our supporters. All of our school and communities’ education is funded by donations from individuals, corporate sponsors, Trusts and Foundations or Welsh Government.

Research suggests that a science capital approach can be particularly helpful for engaging socially disadvantaged students with science. It can improve motivation and can help students see the relevance of what they are learning.

Prosperous communities

Science is crucial for Wales. As a nation, Wales has clear aspirations for the contribution that STEM can bring to the economy, through employment and research. Techniquest delivers public benefits by raising the profile of careers in STEM sectors to address the growing skills gap in Wales.  This ultimately impacts on the longer-term health of the Welsh economy, not to mention the health and wellbeing of their immediate communities.
