Our Philosophy

We are insatiably curious, naturally collaborative and daringly creative. Particle exists to foster and uplift an engaged community of people bringing science and innovation into their everyday lives. We offer pragmatism and inspiration in equal measure to help create a world of inquiring minds as well as doers.


Scitech and ScienceNetwork WA

Scitech plays a critical role in connecting the Western Australian community with the world of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Before the launch of Particle, ScienceNetwork WA was Scitech’s original science news publication with a band of loyal readers.

To keep pace with the ever-changing digital landscape; we rebranded, revised the style and relaunched as Particle. Through Particle, Scitech extends the expectation of what a science centre is and what it delivers. It also meets the challenges of now by producing shareable science stories.

Particle repositions Scitech for the future by developing a robust digital engagement channel that allows us to be innovative, agile and responsive in engaging our audience.


Particle is powered by Scitech

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.
