Techniquest funding 'has to change' - Huw Lewis

Science education centre Techniquest is to have its £1.3m grant from the Welsh government cut by 22% from April.

It has also been told it could lose funding altogether by 2019, putting its long-term future in doubt.

The 30-year-old hands-on learning museum in Cardiff and Wrexham relies on the funding for 40% of its income.

Education Minister Huw Lewis said Techniquest was "overly dependent on public funds" and it had to change.

Stephen Best, chair of Techniquest told BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan they were up for the challenge.
