Grant promises fresh new discoveries
SCITECH’S early childhood zone Discover-land is one step closer to a refurbishment with a recent grant of $250,000.
The science education centre received the grant through Lotterywest this month.
The grant will contribute towards a $402,000 refurbishment of the zone and will allow a larger space with new exhibits.
“The outcome will be a dynamic interactive space where 0-5 year olds can discover and explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) concepts using modern learning approaches,” Scitech chief executive Alan Brien said.
Refurbishments works are scheduled to begin this year with completion anticipated for May 2018.
