On the weekend of the 20th and 21st of August, Scitech invites you and your family to enjoy the World Biotech Tour and get a closer look and better understand of biotechnology!

Biotechnology is vital to our way of life; if you've ever taken antibiotics, eaten bread or sipped on a beer, then you've got biotechnology to thank!

The World Biotech Tour is a multi-year initiative that brings biotechnology to life at select science centres and museums worldwide.

The World Biotech Tour allows you and your children to take part in a range of fun interactive activities, including:

  • Biotechnology scavenger hunt

  • Meet the scientist Q&A sessions

  • Experience a plant cell in virtual reality

  • Make a cake in a cup

  • Learn about exoskeletons

  • Special planetarium show

  • Plus much more!

    Tickets are now available and as regular admission prices apply, it is an affordable day out for the family. Purchase your tickets online at or purchase them at the door.

    Prices are as follows:

  • Children under 4 years: FREE

  • Children 4-15 years: $12

  • Concession: $16
