Extra Money For Science For Schools

The Welsh Government wants schools to help develop the next generation of scientists.

£2.3m of funding will be spent on new equipment and helping teachers improve the way they teach the subject.

First Minister Carwyn Jones says science is a really important field for the Welsh economy. He said: "What's important is that we have enough youngsters who study science at all the different levels so that we've got those people that outside investors want  - we know that those skills mean more jobs."

It's hoped the investment will also help schools prepare well for the next PISA tests in 2015.

Part of the package also includes grant funding for Techniquest in Cardiff and Techniquest Glyndwr.
