Our supporters

We would like to thank all of our generous supporters.

Without you, we would be unable to deliver our essential educational work to some of the most disadvantaged communities in Wales.

Science Capital supporters

We are very thankful to the funders who helped make our Science Capital development a reality. This project has been made possible through the support of the Inspiring Science Fund — a partnership between UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome.

Additional support was gratefully received from Moondance Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, and Welsh Government’s ‘Invest to Save’ fund.

And the team of experts who helped create the Science Capital project — project managers Lee Wakemans, the design team of HLM, Hydrock, Wardell Armstrong and Bureau Veritas.

Individual supporters

Mrs Allison Bowden for supporting the annual Nuffield Research Placement Programme with a dedicated award in memory of Mr Steve Bowden, former chairman and trustee of Techniquest.

And all the Friends of Techniquest, volunteers and generous individuals who have helped us on our journey to date.

  •   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.
