Exhibitions bound for California
AFTER breaking into the US market last year, Scitech’s touring exhibitions will touch down in California this month. For the past 26 years, Scitech has built million-dollar exhibitions at its West Perth workshop, displayed them and shipped them off to educate audiences around the world. Scitech travelling exhibitions director Gary Foxton said the exhibitions were acclaimed worldwide for their innovative design that offered an affordable option for science cen- tres. The 500sq m science exhibitions are designed to be packed into two sea containers and despite logistical challenges, Scitech is able to meet back-to-back bookings often made by venues on opposite sides of the world. “Scitech is looking forward to a big touring year after breaking into the US market,” Mr Foxton said. “The appeal of our travelling exhibition product is clear with 13 bookings from venues in Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Ohio, Kansas, Alabama and even Las Vegas in Nevada. “Our exhibitions are designed to communicate science effectively regardless of cultural differences.” This month, Scitech will premiere its ‘SPEED: Science in Motion’ exhibition at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley, California. Scitech currently has 11 touring exhibitions covering a range of topics including light, speed, transport, forensics, espionage, dinosaurs and space.
