Current Projects & Workshops

Building Our Community

G. Oakley & Sons have generously sponsored an exciting new project which will engage people living in the local area with the construction of The Science Capital. Building Our Community invites groups from Butetown, Grangetown and Riverside to site visits to experience and track developments.

Adam Oakley, Managing Director said, “Increasing diversity within the construction industry is important to us and we’re delighted to be able to support Techniquest and people living in the local area.”

Those involved with the project will also look at the history of the building and its surrounding areas, creating a legacy piece that will display in our new community room.

  •   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.

    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.
