Hutt at Heart

#siliconvalleyiym2019

The IYM (Innovative Young Minds) programme encourages young women to explore science, technology, engineering, mathematics and high-tech manufacturing.

It’s a partnership between Hutt City Council and Rotary Hutt City. Each year IYM hosts a residential programme open to female students in Year 11 and 12 during the July school holidays.

It’s a network that students join for life – not just one week! In April 2019, twelve IYM alumnae spent two weeks in San Francisco. Some of them had never left New Zealand before. This trip was the first of the new IYM alum Silicon Valley programme to learn about global science and technology innovation.

While on the trip one of the 2018 alum, Madeline, took over IYM’s Instagram.
