We work with five partners, who are experts on raising interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The National Science Academy (NSA) partners are: The Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth; the National Botanic Garden of Wales; Techniquest Cardiff; Techniquest Glyndŵr; and Wales Institute of Mathematical and Computational Sciences.
These organisations are ‘hubs’ of STEM outreach activity. The hubs meet regularly and advise the Chief Scientific Adviser for Wales on STEM activity. A representative of the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales attends the meetings.
The hubs also deliver a range of STEM projects themselves.
