Open Day

Save the date! Join us on Saturday, 5 November for ChemCentre Open Day 2022.

Visitors get to go behind the scenes at the State's premier chemical and forensic science facility to see how some of the State's top scientists operate. More than 4000 people visited ChemCentre Open Day 2019 for a day of free, educational and fun activities, displays and demonstrations celebrating the role science and chemistry play in safeguarding the Western Australian community, industry and environment.

This year promises to be just as exciting with laboratory tours, science shows, hands-on activities and opportunities to hear from scientists about the important work they do including how we use science to help police solve crimes or work with emergency services to manage hazardous materials and keep you safe. Explore the Emergency Response unit's mobile laboratory and test the portable detector instruments!

With free soil analysis for the ‘green thumbs’, career advice for the 'future scientists', ‘little hero’ missions for younger children, liquid nitrogen ice-cream and more - there will be something for everyone!

Really awesome day full of fun, interactive activities aimed at different age groups. My 11 year old son now has a clear path of the type of science he would like to pursue. The lab tours were great, the activities really hands on and the volunteers were so friendly and happy to answer questions. Bath salt making was our favourite. What a fantastic initiative, great work!!
