Techniquest

Techniquest has a mission to embed science in Welsh culture through interactive engagement.

Working with partners from across sectors, we provide meaningful educational experiences to last a lifetime. Workshops, research, outreach and, of course, our accessible and inclusive exhibition centre here in Cardiff Bay all contribute to our ambition.

We can’t do all of this without your support.

Thank you for choosing to donate to support science education in Wales.

Any amount you give will make a real difference:

  • £9 could allow three pupils to experience an interactive science workshop for free.
  • £20 could provide transport for our science communicators to visit an underfunded school.
  • £56 would allow two families from disadvantaged communities to enjoy a free day at Techniquest.


Gift Aid

HMRC operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated.

This means that if you donate £100 to Techniquest, we receive £125 at no extra cost to you!

If you are a UK tax payer, don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box, so we can claim this extra income from HMRC. It’s a small thing that makes a big difference.
