For the first time IYM is expanding nationwide and doubling in size to two week long sessions with opportunities provided to eighty female senior secondary school students attending a residential programme during the July school holidays.
IYM participants experience first-hand what it is like to work in diverse industries like ICT, engineering and high-tech manufacturing.
Lower Hutt businesses and research-led companies, CRIs, and tertiary education providers open their doors to showcase the work they do and profile the myriad of job opportunities available in tech, engineering and science.
