Collaboration

Corporate Partnership offers your company a unique longer term relationship with Techniquest Glyndŵr and our work.

Your company could provide a range of valuable contributions to support our mission to enthuse and engage young people and the public with STEM subjects.

Providing funding to support specific educational work

It is particularly useful for us to receive funding which can enable us to offer a variety of educational shows and workshops for free or at much reduced cost to schools. It enables us to cover our costs of delivery whilst directly benefiting schools which are often challenged by restricted budgets.

Our work with the general public can also be enhanced by being able to offer special activities or events to attract additional visitors to our centre as part of an educational but engaging experience.

Working with us to provide educational visits

School visits to Industry are especially valuable in helping link the world of work to the science covered in class or through one of our interactive workshops. 

Through experience we have found this can be an important motivational factor in considering further study or a future career in a STEM subject.

For example when you can personally experience the task of programming of a robotic machine to carry out a number of actions and then afterwards see full-sized robotic assembly lines using similar commands it really fires the imagination and interest about what could be the basis of a lifetime’s involvement in Industry.

Current partners

We are grateful for the support of the following organisations which enables us to deliver a high quality educational experience for students at primary and secondary level as well as the general public.

Welsh Government

Funding from the Welsh Government 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.

 

 

Glyndŵr University

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, we aim to be bold, inspiring and enterprising in everything we do.

 

Techniquest (Cardiff)

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.

 

Association of Science Discovery Centres (ASDC)

Techniquest Glyndŵr is a member of ASDC, the UK’s network of over 60 science and discovery centres which supports its members towards their common goals of engaging all in science. 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 and activities associated with the UK’s first ESA Astronaut in the International Space Station.
