Adam Bennett, one of the co-founders of DNA Puppetry is busy at work being a science communicator at Scitech, Perth, Western Australia.
“I’m pleased as Punch to be here” jokes Adam. “I was a science student at Curtin University – it was called WAIT back then – in the 1980’s before I changed tack and build a successful career in puppetry. I’m bringing my interest in science right into the heart of my work now.”
Scitech has a number of galleries – a general science gallery with hands-on exhibits about physical forces, electomagnetism and science prinicipals, a regularly changing specialist exhibition which is currently ‘Measure Island’, two performance spaces and a planetarium called Horizon which has a massive projection screen giving you a full hemishpere of viewing.
Scitech is one of the best value attractions in Perth with hours of discovery in one small price. Scitech also has outreach programmes, special events, a specialist education lab and a digital studio for the latest digital technology fun and learning.
