Techniquest Glyndŵr operates within a partnership that includes Wrexham Glyndŵr University, the Welsh Government, Techniquest in Cardiff and the Association of Science Discovery Centres.
We are grateful for the support of these organisations which enable us to deliver a high quality educational experience for students at primary and secondary level as well as the general public.
The Welsh Government provides funding that enables us to deliver a comprehensive programme of “Inreach” and “Outreach” STEM educational activity to Primary and Secondary Schools across North Wales.
The Welsh Government is the devolved Government for Wales.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University supports us through provision of premises, IT support, Financial, HR and other services and supportive links to a wide range of Departments engaged in STEM activity. These enable us to enrich visits by schools through the experience of engaging with the advanced facilities and equipment available on the University Campus.
Based in Wrexham but with campuses and facilities around North East Wales, Glyndŵr University champions the spirit of enterprise and an outward-facing philosophy. Inspired by Welsh hero Owain Glyndŵr, the University aims to be bold, inspiring and enterprising in everything it does.
Techniquest (Cardiff) supports the delivery of an outreach programme by Techniquest Glyndŵr to secondary schools across North West Wales. It also maintains the 65 interactive science exhibits in the Techniquest Glyndŵr centre, to provide an engaging experience to visitors.
Techniquest is an educational charity, established in 1986 and based in Cardiff, Wales. Their mission is to engage people with science and to motivate them to learn more and we also address science-related areas such as maths, engineering and technology.
It works extensively with public audiences, and provide a range of services to schools and teachers to complement the formal education provision in Wales.
The Association of Science Discovery Centres (ASDC) is the UK’s network of over 60 science and discovery centres which supports its members towards their common goals of engaging all in science. Techniquest Glyndŵr is a member of ASDC.
ASDC is a registered charity whose aim is to bring together the ASDC membership to play a strategic role in the nation's engagement with science.
ASDC has provided funding to support the delivery of a range of special programmes including Astronomy workshops, the Destination Space Programme associated with the UK’s first ESA Astronaut in the International Space Station, Secret World of Gases and Operation Earth.
