Our Story

Particle launched in 2017 as a digital science publication that delivers creative and engaging content designed for Western Australian youth.

Our vision is to celebrate science from Western Australia and the people who make it happen.


Our Philosophy

We are insatiably curious, naturally collaborative and daringly creative.

We offer pragmatism and inspiration in equal measure to help create a world of inquiring young minds.


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 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.
