Scitech is an all ages science centre
Scitech is an all ages science centre that aims to provide contemporary content that excites young children, challenges middle years, inspires teenagers and engages adults. We do our very best to provide an environment that encourages discussion between parents and their children, or teachers and their students.
As the Whodunit? Exhibition is a forensic investigation the crime scene as a whole needs to be investigated and the simulated body is shown in context to the crime. We have included a warning at the entrance of the Exhibition to allow parents the opportunity to prepare their children in advance or exclude them if they do not feel it is appropriate.
