Scitech is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to increase awareness, interest, capability and participation by all Western Australians in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
It was established in 1988 as a company limited by guarantee through the combined efforts of the Western Australian Government, leading industry figures and the State’s top scientists and educators.
For 2018 to 2021, Scitech has developed a new vision for enabling a brighter STEM-enabled future for all Western Australians. We call it ‘New Scitech’.
Our bold ‘New Scitech’ strategy will see Scitech change to become more digitally focused in the way we deliver STEM education and awareness, and will drive the showcasing of the latest STEM technologies and advances from across Australia and the globe. Through this strategy, Scitech will empower all Western Australians to be equipped with the 21st century skillset needed now and for the future. Read more about our 'New Scitech' strategy here.
Our programs, exhibitions, regional tours, and teacher development programs now engage more than 500,000 Western Australians each year. Scitech’s websites and social media platforms engage hundreds of thousands more.
We acknowledge the strong ongoing support of the Government of Western Australia and from our partners, including leading industry players, tertiary education institutions, STEM agencies and other key stakeholders.
