Release your inner child… just £3 entry!

We’re going back to school for After Hours, the adults-only evenings at Techniquest. Chewing gum is allowed, there’s no homework but you’re welcome to wear your uniform if you like!

Pick up your timetable and head off to your favourite lessons…

HISTORY
£1.50 per person
Loved History? Don’t be late for the live Victorian “amputation” in the Medical Theatre.

MATHS
Top of the class at Maths? We have plenty of puzzles to give your grey matter a work-out.

BIOLOGY
£1.50 per person
No giggling at the back, please! In today’s lesson, you'll be making your own STD to take home.

PHYSICS
£1.50 per person
Settle down now, class — your challenge is to build a craft capable of landing on the surface of Mars without breaking its delicate cargo.

DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
£1.50 per person
Work in teams to design and build your own rocket. There will be a test at the end — a test launch, that is.

FULLY LICENSED BAR
With no kids around, we can offer beer, cider and wine for purchase… will that glass of wine make the puzzles even more difficult to solve?

Please note that After Hours is only for those aged 18 and over. After Hours is a very popular event and entry is subject to a maximum capacity. Spaces for all special events are allocated on a first come, first served basis subject to availability and popular events will sell out quickly, so please arrive early to minimise the chance of disappointment. Some events may incur a small additional charge to attend. A ‘Challenge 21’ policy is operated for admission and at the bar, so please bring ID with you if you are lucky enough to look under 21!

After Hours is supported by +Admiral Insurance.

Release your inner child… just £3 entry!

As well as the 120 hands-on exhibits, we have…

RETRO GAMES ROOM
+Cardiff Geek Party will be running a drop-in retro gaming room for the evening. A great way to relive your childhood, be introduced to the gaming of the 80s and 90s and have fun while playing against your friends. Staff will be on hand should you need any history, information or guidance about any of the specific games or consoles.

SPOOKY SCIENCE
£1.50 per person
Ever seen a pumpkin carve itself, or a coin scream? Can you sit on a bed of nails without screaming, and can science be used to create potions and ghosts? Find out at the Spooky Science show!

VIRTUAL REALITY ROOM
Don your Google Cardboard headset and escape into virtual reality, thanks to the lovely people at +Cardiff University. Explore the Solar System and Universe all in one night at Techniquest!

PLANETARIUM — STAR TOURS
£1.50 per person
Find out more about some familiar constellations, the planets, how stars are born and how they die. Our Digital Planetarium can take you through space for a close up look at some of nature’s most beautiful sights such as distant galaxies and exploded stars.

PUB QUIZ
£1.50 per person
Test your grey matter and see if you have what it takes to win one of our coveted ‘mystery goody bags’.
