Scitech is a not-for-profit organisation proudly supported by the Western Australian Government through the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation
Students explore how our world is changing over time, and how these changes affect all living organisms in the natural environment. How are they interconnected? How does one change create another?
Earth Matters helps students gather and understand data and use this to make predictions and develop explanations. They will build on the skills they need to design new solutions to environmental challenges.
We can help you choose an Earth Matters excursion for your class. During your visit, our Science Presenters will guide you through the exhibition and its related workshops and shows. All programs are linked to the Western Australian curriculum.
Your visit is supported by an Education Guide that includes pre- and post-visit resources. This is designed to incorporate the themes, content and skills explored during an Earth Matters excursion into your classroom teaching.
Book into this hands-on workshop as part of your Earth Matters experience. Students will take on the role of a marine scientist and help solve environmental challenges facing our oceans.
Spend time in the tinkering space, where students will design, create and test their own prototype wind turbines to learn about alternative and sustainable ways of generating electricity.
How can we reduce the waste we create when generating electricity? Can we reuse our waste to power our world? Lightbulb Moments explores how scientists use creative problem solving to tackle these challenges.
In this full dome planetarium show, students will learn about the diverse connections between organisms, helping them better understand how humans can support the diversity of life in our habitat, Earth.
The Arctic Sea Ice exhibit brings data to life to illustrate how the Earth’s surface changes over time.
Use this experience to prompt discussions around how these changes are the result of natural processes and human activity. There are opportunities for students to explore how data can be collected and used to explain phenomena and tell stories.
