Kalien Selby, Chief Executive Officer, is Scitech’s key spokesperson.
It is possible to film in all areas of the Science Centre at City West. However, there are a few considerations: time of day and working around our peak visitation hours, staffing, lighting and media permission forms. We will do our best to accommodate your request, however please appreciate that some flexibility may be needed on your behalf.
Take a Virtual Tour to see what the spaces in our Science Centre look like.
The Planetarium is a dark space, and filming or taking photos is not straightforward.
Film crews and photographers cannot use lighting or flashes as they will interfere with the images on the screen.
We also consider your request in the context of our normal show schedule and peak visitation periods, which may make photography or filming unfeasible.
If you wish to film our visitors, we will need to arrange for parents to sign permission forms for their children. This may happen prior to your filming, or on the day, and we will either work with you or ask you to organise this, determined on a case-by-case basis.
As Scitech is deemed a ‘public space’, news crews can film without first asking permission of parents.
We always notify our visitors if filming is taking place in the Science Centre, as a matter of courtesy.
This is something we would determine on a case-by-case basis. Depending on your request, we will either work with a talent agency, which will incur a fee, or arrange for a school group to take part, or recruit staff children.
To show our amazing STEM exhibits at their best, the surrounding space is deliberately designed to be quite dark. So lighting is challenging, as natural light is limited. As such, you may wish to bring in your own lighting equipment to get the best results.
Limited paid parking is available at City West. Scitech visitors have access to a $5 all-day parking ticket via parking machines located inside City West Centre. Just remember to make a note of your licence plate number.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we receive many invitations to support a broad range of worthwhile projects every day. Please understand that as much as we would like to, we can’t support everyone.
Our policy is to assist organisations and events that predominantly promote STEM education. If that’s you, please contact us.
