About this Event
The Innovators' Tea Party career speed networking for students in years 10-12 will be held throughout Terms 3 this year.
There are 3 career speed-networking sessions to choose from:
Saturday September 11th
Session 7 - Creative Tech: 10:30am - 12:00pm
Session 8 - All STEM fields: 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Session 9 - Environmental & Earth Sciences: 2:30pm - 4:00pm
Each session will give students the opportunity to meet with 12 different women working in a range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths fields. You have the option of attending the session by yourself, and speaking with mentors one-on-one, or bringing a friend and talking to the mentors together. Light snacks and tea/coffee will be provided. Each student will receive a copy of the event program, with profiles of each of our women in STEM mentors.
If you are attending your session with a friend, you only need to register once for the both of you - each registration reserves a single table in the speed-networking circuit which can hold 1-2 students.
Target audience & year level restrictions:
This event is free & open to all students in years 10-12. In the case that tickets don’t book out one week before the event, we will be opening registrations to students in years 8 and 9 - please get in contact with us if you would like to be notified if this is the case. For students in years 7-9, please consider coming along to our 'Inspire in 5' programs throughout the year, which are designed just for you! Learn more about it here: www.innovatorsteaparty.org
Note: Most students find that one session is enough (there is a lot of talking!). However, students wishing to attend more than one session are permitted to register for a maximum of 2 sessions each event day. This is to ensure that the opportunity is made available to all students interested in coming along. Please don't sign up for more than 2 sessions as we will need to then contact you directly to understand which session would would like to drop!
The Innovators’ Tea Party is a WA-based not-for-profit organisation which aims to inspire and empower more young women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We link successful female scientists, engineers and innovators with high-school students in order to promote STEM-focussed careers. Our mentors come from a range of backgrounds and work in a variety of industries, and all of them are passionate about promoting their field to future innovators.
Our speed-networking events are free and open to all students in years 10-12 and give attendees the opportunity to speak to each female mentor for a short period of time before moving on to the next. In this way, the students get to meet a number of role models specialising in a range of STEM fields. We encourage attendees to bring a friend and talk to the mentors together.
