Heath (7) and Cy (4) Williams sent the letter to Scitech after visiting the Ontario Science Centre while on holiday. They saw a big pin wall there and suggested that Perth should have one too.
‘We love receiving ideas for new exhibits and the best people to tell us what they would enjoy at Scitech are the kids who are going to come to play and interact with these exhibits once they’re out on the floor,’ exhibition design manager Murray Dare said.
Mr Dare took the boys and their mother Carolyn on a tour where they got to see what was in the works for the upcoming Rio Tinto Innovation Central exhibition, set to open in November.
‘Exhibitions are a long-time coming and it’s great when regular Scitech visitors like Heath and Cy get to come in, see what we’re working on and give us their thoughts and feedback,’ he said.
‘It gives us a unique chance to see if we’re on the right track to making our exhibits exciting and everyone gets to have fun while doing it.’
