Easter Ideas 1 - Techniquest

The Easter holidays are almost upon us and parents up and down the country will be looking for ideas to keep the little ones entertained.

Well one way is by taking them along to Techniquest in Cardiff Bay. They'll love it.

Techniquest is hands on science centre. It houses 160 science, maths and engineering exhibitions and experiments. And the best thing about it is that because your child is having so much fun they don't realise they're also learning at the same time. Live demonstrations and a planetarium all add to the fun.
