In 2017, The Innovators’ Tea Party will be held during National Science Week, on the 19th-20th August at FLUX in the Perth CBD. There will be 8 speed-networking sessions where students get 5-10 minutes speaking with each mentor in the session. Most of our sessions will cover a wide range of STEM areas to give students the best exposure to the STEM careers available to them. This year, there will also be four themed sessions for students interested in a particular study area. These sessions will still encompass a range of career options, but will be focussed on one of the following areas:
- Medicine and Health Sciences
- Environmental sciences
- Data and Computer sciences
Applications to be a mentor for this event closed in May and we have now recruited 128 amazing women working in STEM to attend the event as mentors. We are still looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly, so please get in contact if you would like to help out on the day!
Sponsorship opportunities are also available – the support of our sponsors means that tickets can be free for all students. If your company or organisation would like to be involved as a sponsor, please get in contact as we will soon be closing applications.
Free registrations to students and schools in July, so please check back soon for more information!
