We are looking for students who show potential in STEMM subjects, not necessarily those who have performed at the top of their class in the past. We want to inspire students that have not had exposure to STEMM subjects previously or who need to build their confidence to pursue these subjects further. IYM Online will also give these young women the opportunity to make lasting friendships with others who share a passion for STEMM!
