Innovative Young Minds programme (IYM) will host a week-long camp for Year 11 and 12 girls.

The IYM programme runs between 8-13 July 2018. Students will stay at Silverstream Retreat, Lower Hutt and travel each day to visit a variety of technology businesses, Crown Research Institutes and Tertiary Education Providers in the Wellington region.

Participants will experience a range of technologies through hands-on activities and witness innovation they never thought possible.

They will hear stories of inspiration from other women who have built careers and businesses working in the technology and innovation sector. They will mix with a wide range of women from a cross-section of business sectors who think outside the square, who apply their creativity to innovate and who are passionate about science and technology.

Cost: The cost to students is $120.00. The balance of the cost - $550 is sponsored by Rotary Clubs in the region.
