Techniquest – Molecules and Bright Sparks!

February 28 - March 3

During the Cardiff Science Festival, Techniquest will be running some exciting extra activities to excite and educate everyone! The activities will be run throughout the day.

Molecule Busking – Have a go at creating molecules using plastic elements as building blocks.

‘Bright Sparks’ Workshop Activities – Explore electricity through interactive, hands-on demonstrations, including the use of a Van de Graff generator. You can also be part of a human circuit to show how electricity flows. You’ll then work in groups to design and make electrical items for a treehouse den: a fan, a light, an alarm. You’ll be given a chance to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of your designs and discuss alternative solutions to the task.

Entry to Techniquest is also at a reduced rate of £3.30 per person after 3pm over the festival.
