“Why is it so?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Scitech in Perth has a dazzling range of working scientific displays that visitors can try and see how and why they work. The hands-on approach, right down to a bed of nails, means even the most "I'm bored" child (or adult) will have great difficulty finding an excuse to be so.
We took the grand-children (10 and 13) who tried out a range of displays and clearly enjoyed the experience. A wonderful way to fill in a cold drizzly Perth afternoon.

“Baz”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Very dated looking. This place looks very tired. Needs an update especially as they charge so much for entry.

“Fantastic outing for kids of all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Hands-on science and technology experience for everyone. Very friendly and informative staff. Close to public transport (train). Great outing for a rainy day and encourages kids to think 'outside' the square (even if they aren't aware of it!).

“great the first time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I think scitech is great the first time you visit. If you go quite soon afterwards then it is a bit samish but if you wait til they change some of their displays then it's a nice surprise for next time you visit. It's in a small shopping centre, you park underneath and they give you a free pass for exciting. They have a cafe and shop. In my personal opinion it's quite expensive for what it is.
