Growing the Future

We are supporting National Botanical Gardens of Wales’ Growing the Future Project. This 5 year project builds long-term sustainability for gardens.

There are multiple levels of engagement for this project, with Botanical Gardens hoping to create hubs throughout Cardiff that can provide short and long term courses. The sessions will touch on best practices on green space managements and parks, as well as combining diversity with economic sense.

Explore Your Universe

This project is a free 6-week programme that will run between August and October. It focuses specifically on building the community groups knowledge on topics such as Space and Physics in a engaging and interactive way.

Techniquest will facilitate the session in the community by taking out kits to the community group.

The project will be developed by the community group with the support of our Project Team, so that the content is specifically around their interests.

Audio Tours

Techniquest are working on becoming more accessible for individuals with visual impairments or are hard of hearing. We are therefore looking to work with groups or individuals that can participate as a consultation group to support us in creating content and devices that are user-friendly.

Pen Y Cymoedd & Vattenfall Engagement Pilot

The project will involve existing, local community groups that will have played a key role in project development. The sessions will focus on how wind turbines work, the impact the site has had on the local environment, biodiversity in the area, wildlife and plants, atmospheric conditions and wildlife spotting exercises. Vattenfall have transferred to the use of renewable energy sources, this project will highlight the importance of why they chose the Pen Y Cymoedd site.
