Inspire in 5

Career stories from WA’s women in STEM professionals

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a scientist? 

Do you want to see where new technology and innovation will take us in the future?

Have you ever asked yourself how anything you learn in maths is actually useful?

Learn about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths from the experts!

Join us one evening throughout 2021 for a free series of presentations from some of WA’s women in STEM champions to learn about the endless opportunities a career in STEM can offer. You will hear first hand what it’s like to work at the frontlines of innovation.

These events are for high school students in years 7-9, their parents/guardians and teachers. Each of our Women in STEM Mentors will give a short 5-minute presentation about their studies, career journey, and day-to-day work life, followed by an opportunity for students to ask questions in a facilitated panel discussion.

2021 Events

We will be holding many Inspire in 5 events throughout 2021, with the intent on hosting them across multiple locations in Perth & some regional/rural locations. Confirmed dates are listed below. The majority of our Inspire in 5 Events will be hosted at schools, however our events are open to students from all schools (not just the host school!)

Please bring your mobile device as some activities during the presentations will be digital.
