A long term vision
For nearly 35 years, we’ve been offering engaging, inspiring and innovative STEM experiences. And by connecting with more than 500,000 people, in communities throughout Western Australia, every year, we continue this mission of fostering a lifelong curiosity and positive attitude towards STEM.
As a result, the Scitech brand is seen as a high-water-mark of STEM-learning in Western Australia. This trust instils within us a deep sense of pride, as well as an enormous responsibility.
As the population dynamics and workplace landscapes of WA change, so too the skillsets of the future workforce are transforming. So, in today’s rapidly changing world, it’s no time to rest on our past successes. To remain a relevant, innovative, commercially sustainable organisation, we must constantly scan the horizon for opportunities to innovate so we can meet the needs of the future.
The Scitech Strategy 2030 outlines how we will achieve our purpose to inspire engagement by all Western Australians in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will guide us so we can continue to encourage more children and young adults to study STEM subjects to develop the skills they need for tomorrow’s jobs, and it will enable us to increase STEM literacy, to engage and develop the broader community towards economic prosperity and sustainability.
The strategy targets four key outcomes:
- Inspired and engaged Western Australians.
- More confident and capable teachers and students.
- Parents engaging in STEM discussions at home.
- A more informed public.
We will achieve this by honing our core skills, developing new and enhanced capabilities, and furthering our reach with physical and digital experiences, that build on our legacy while aligning with our stakeholder priorities. We will inspire and engage people by leveraging their curiosity, wonder and excitement, support the development of STEM skills through Scitech experiences, and connect and collaborate with the community to have a shared purpose. Looking after our people and environment, and building on our future with reinvestment in the work we do, will allow us not only to continually evolve, but also ensure we continue to be relevant to Western Australians.
Preparing all Western Australians for an exciting STEM-enabled future takes foresight, innovation, agility and open-mindedness to change, and while our strategy may seem ambitious, it will provide us with the guidance and ability to engage with the broader community and strive towards economic prosperity and sustainability.
