Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

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.
