The IYM Mission
The Innovative Young Minds (IYM) programme is designed to encourage young women to explore science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and high-tech manufacturing – fields we call the STEMM sector.
Our engaging and interactive online and residential programmes showcase the wide range of study, research and career opportunities available in STEMM.
Participants will be exposed to eye-opening and inspiring science and technology content. They will also make lasting friendships with like-minded young women who share a passion for STEMM!
Our programmes are only open to young women because females are underrepresented in the STEMM sector and we want to change that.
Our goal is to inspire a new generation of female innovators and industry leaders.
