Big celebrations as Perth’s Scitech turns 30

SCITECH will be celebrating on Monday August 13, when the organisation celebrates its 30th birthday.

In 1988, the Western Australian State Government launched Scitech with the mission to increase awareness, interest, capability and participation by all Western Australians in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Scitech has made a significant difference in the lives of West Australians over the past 30 years and the body is excited to launch its the “New Scitech” strategy, which will drive the future direction of Western Australia’s leading STEM organisation into its next 30 years.

“Thirty years after Scitech was launched, the imperative to engage the community in STEM is as relevant as ever – in fact, even more so,” Deb Hancock, Scitech’s CEO, said.

“Scitech’s continuing mission, strategy and passion is to ensure that all Western Australians have the opportunity to access and develop these critical STEM skills to deliver a bright future for every Western Australian.”
