Scitech Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Information

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Scitech has made the decision to temporarily close the Science Centre at City West from COB Friday 20 March. Given the sensible restrictions introduced around mass gatherings due to COVID-19, operating the Science Centre is no longer tenable. 


We’re dedicated to sharing engaging STEM experiences with the WA community, but the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our number one priority.  


Due to the highly interactive nature of our exhibits, we believe this is the best way we can help protect our community, especially the most vulnerable among us. Unlike schools or universities, Scitech is a public space with visitors from all walks of life and age groups. 

At this time our commitment to providing exceptional STEM engagement for our loyal visitors and the broader community remains strong, and in the coming weeks we will be ramping up our ability to deliver innovative and contemporary STEM experiences through an expansion of our digital delivery channels. 


While all STEM engagement tours to regional towns and remote Aboriginal communities have currently been suspended, Scitech will continue to operate outreach programs into Perth metropolitan schools with risk assessment guidelines in place. Programs and shows have been adapted in accordance with guidelines around social distancing and safety.    


Behind the scenes, Scitech will carry on with the development of the new feature exhibition ‘Earth Matters’ to be launched later this year. Other upgrades to gallery spaces within the Science Centre will also commence, ensuring a fresh and exciting space when the doors reopen at a future date.  


Scitech will continue to closely monitor advice from the Australian and WA Government health departments to determine future developments and responses in this evolving situation. Updates will be communicated here and through social media. You can find us through Scitech Facebook, Scitech Instagram, Scitech Twitter and Scitech Youtube.


We hope that you understand our decision and maintain your curiosity for science, technology, engineering and maths for the day we reopen.
