The Innovators’ Tea Party
Women in STEM inspiring the next generation
A series of free events for high school students
We create unique opportunities for local high school students to engage with some of WA’s female leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Who we are: The Innovators’ Tea Party
The Innovators’ Tea Party Inc. (TITP) is a WA-based not-for-profit organisation, which aims to encourage 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-focused careers. Our mentors come from a range of backgrounds and work in a range of industries, and all of them are passionate about promoting their field to future innovators. Our events are open to all students within the ticketed year levels.
“The best thing about this event was meeting inspiring and amazing women and being in a room surrounded by like-minded people. I often feel like an outcast at school because I’m smart and it’s considered ‘uncool’ to be smart. But the energy in the room was so wonderful that I finally felt like I was valued and not alone.” – Student
Some of our mentors are fresh out of university so can give insight into course selection and job seeking, while others have decades of experience and are technical experts and industry leaders. Our events have attracted the attendance of hundreds of students and mentors alike in the past 4 years.
“The best thing about this event was the mentors – all so enthusiastic and passionate about their fields! Also, for my daughter, seeing other young women and students excited about Science.” – Parent
In 2022 we are offering 2 types of programs – one for middle school students, and one for upper school students. The schedule for these events can be found on our website and will be updated throughout the year as we lock in our calendar.
