Yes, you can. If you decide you want to join after spending the day with us, we’ll deduct the cost of your admission ticket from a new membership. The only thing we ask is that you join on the same day as you visit, otherwise the offer isn’t available. Oh, and the maximum number of general admission tickets you can apply to your new membership cost is limited to the number of members who join. Come to Scitech for the day, stay for the year.
We’re afraid not. Only the person named on the card can use it. If you think they’d love Scitech, you can always gift them their very own membership.
Yes. If you get here and realise you’ve forgotten your card, you’ll be asked to verify your identity at the entry desk with valid photo ID.
Limited paid parking is available at City West. Scitech visitors have access to a $5 for 5 hours parking ticket via parking machines located inside City West Centre. Just remember to make a note of your licence plate number.
Absolutely. Everyone listed on the membership application gets a card. The more the merrier, we say.
Of course! If you’re a concession card holder or tertiary student you can receive discounted adult membership. You just need to present a valid photo or student ID when you join. You don’t, however, get a discount on gift memberships and the discount can’t be combined with other promotional offers. Just so you know.
Yes, this is one of the best things about being a Scitech member. Not only do you have access to Scitech, you also gain access to other science centres in Australia.
If you are travelling overseas, you have access to reciprocal benefits at over 200 Science Centres and Museums worldwide through the ASTC passport program (www.ASTC.org/passport/). Learn more.
We love to hear from our members and also welcome your thoughts on Scitech membership, your experience with us and, of course, what we could do better. Feel free to contact us.
Too easy. There are three ways you can join us at Scitech: online, onsite or by calling 9215 0740 during business hours.
You can either jump online, drop in to Scitech or call us on 9215 0740 during business hours – just have your membership number ready.
If you need to make any changes to your membership or want us to communicate with you differently, you can email or call us on 9215 0740 during business hours
Your membership card has an expiry date on it, plus we’ll be in touch a few weeks before your membership expires. We don’t want you to miss a thing.
You can purchase a gift membership online (gift a membership), onsite or by calling 9215 0740 during business hours.
You get a whole 12-months of knowledge, which starts from the date you join. If you’re gifting a membership you can choose the date you want it to start, and if you renew your membership early then your new membership period starts from the day after your current membership expires.
We hope that never happens because, unfortunately, memberships are not refundable for any reason.
You bet, we hope you do. If you come along and join in person, you can go straight in. If you do it online, you’ll receive a confirmation email, which you can either print off or just show us proof of purchase on your mobile device and in you go. If you joined over the phone, just give us your name and show us some photo ID at the entry desk. All that’s left to do is have fun.
Don’t worry, it happens. Just call us on 9215 0740 during business hours and request a new card.
We love all our members, but we’ll tell you a secret: our favourite members are the ones who volunteer. Spreading the word (and the love) of all things STEM is why Scitech runs an active volunteer program . Alternatively, there are many citizen science projects to be a part of.
As if being a member wasn’t benefit enough, we like to give you money off, too. Your membership includes:
10% discount at The Discovery Shop
10% discount for selected workshops
10% off selected events, including Adults Only 18+ events
10% discount for Children’s Birthday Parties
Be sure to have your membership card or membership number ready to redeem these discounts.
Generally, we communicate to the primary contact person on the membership by mail and email. We’ll email a regular newsletter as well as special member-only invites letting you know about free or discounted tickets for specific events or workshops. Membership renewals are sent in the post, so keep your eye on your inbox when you know your annual renewal is coming up. Check the What’s On page for events with member discounts. They happen throughout the year.
If you join while you’re here, we’ll do our very best to have your cards ready to pick up at the end of your visit. If you join online, over the phone or during peak visitation periods, your membership cards will be mailed to you within 10 working days.
If a ticketed event or Scitech experience requires you to buy an additional ticket, it will be clearly indicated on all publicity and communications. If you’re unsure, just ask us.
We’re so pleased you ask, because when you buy a membership to Scitech you get so much more than just access to our world-renowned exhibits and exhibitions. Your membership says that you’re a part of our community. A community who works together to help us reach our goal of increasing awareness and interest in all things STEM. Not only does your membership fee help our Perth HQ remain a must-visit, it also helps us support the STEM development of future generations. It’s because of your membership that we can make a social impact, contribute to economic prosperity and encourage diversity. So you see, your membership is very important. And we can’t thank you enough.
