Rescue: exhibition at Scitech, Perth, Western Australia

Do you have what it takes to be a hero? How would you react in a high-pressure scenario with people’s lives at stake? ‘Rescue’ is a unique, hands-on exhibition that focuses on the science and technology of rescue scenarios and emergency services. ‘Rescue’ puts you in charge as you discover what it’s like to be involved in land, sea and air rescues. Take control of a full-size helicopter simulator to get a bird’s eye view of a rescue scene and use infrared cameras to look for heat signals. Navigate a jet ski around obstacles as you search for a swimmer washed out to sea or experience what it’s like to find your way through a smoke-filled room, and use fire extinguishers to put out fires. Interactive exhibits will teach you about medicine, search techniques, radio communication, rescue supplies and equipment such as the Jaws of Life. The Rescue’ exhibition is one of Scitech’s eight travelling exhibitions which are proudly supported by BHP Billiton.
