Perth Science Festival moves to the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre. Rain or shine, we’ll see you there with explosive shows, hands-on experiments, native animals and more!

Perth Science Festival is set to kick off National Science Week in Western Australia, with a free family-friendly event in a new indoor venue at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Wander the stalls exploring Future Earth or cuddle up to native animals, then hear from inspirational speakers or jump on a fact-finding tour through art and video games.

With more than 70 different stallholders and shows across the weekend, there will be something for everyone!

Discover augmented reality and sample edible bugs in Scitech’s Future Earth zone, power your own city with Western Power, explore space with Gravity Discovery Centre and Perth Observatory, cuddle up to native animals with Kanyana Wildlife, WA Reptile Park, and Native ARC, and much more.

Perth Science Festival also presents a wide range of shows and tours including the Scitech Bubbles show, Murdoch’s Live and Explosive show, Maths and Movement dance workshop with Creative Moves WA.

WA’s National Science Week invited guest speaker, 17-year-old innovator & CEO of Fiftysix Creations Taj Pabari, will also be stopping by on the Saturday to present his talk “Creating Future Innovators”.

A new feature of this year’s event is the science merchandise available for purchase, including take home science activity kits from Incredible Inventors, science children’s books with Adrienne Body Books and Sassy Tales, REmida Creation Packs and more.
