Accessibility & Inclusion

At Scitech, we’re committed to ensuring that all people have access to our Science Centre facilities, services and STEM learning experiences.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

We believe in delivering a bright STEM-enabled future to all Western Australians, and that there should be no limitations to accessing Scitech experiences and learning opportunities. Scitech offers free carer admission, wheelchair access lifts, and multi-sensory experiences, and we’re committed to enabling Science Centre-wide disability access to our facilities and services. Our minds are always open, for feedback or suggestions.
