ScienceNetwork WA is a independent and reliable source of information about Western Australian science capabilities - including marine science! Developed by our science centre, Scitech, in a successful partnership with the State Government''s Office of Science and Innovation, ScienceNetwork WA contains breaking news from industry, educational and research institutions; a database of upcoming events; profiles of leading scientists, key scientific organisations, and top industry bodies; and links to many resources for students, teachers and professionals.
A not-for-profit initiative, ScienceNetwork WA aims to raise community awareness of the importance of science to our daily lives and the scientific principles at work in every day life as well as encourage the uptake of scientific careers. It also provides the many different facets of Western Australia’s science with one ‘virtual community’ to foster a sense of belonging and common purpose, and encourages an open dialogue about the direction of science in Western Australia.
More than 95 of the State''s leading scientists and educators have shown their support for ScienceNetwork WA by becoming Ambassadors for Science. Since it started more than a year ago, the program has evolved to include a wide variety of people united by one common thread – a desire to broaden the general community’s understanding of the importance and value of science in our lives through events, media comment and profiles. As a result we have had early career scientists, leaders in the field, directors of research institutions, educators and researchers all put up their hand to join.
