Innovative Young Minds Charitable Trust

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 under-represented in the STEMM sector and we want to change that. Our goal is to inspire a new generation of female innovators and industry leaders.

Innovative Young Minds runs three programmes for young women keen to join the STEMM sector:


IYM Residential is a six-day residential programme that exposes participants to the many research and career opportunities in STEMM in the most engaging and hands-on way possible.


Delivered via Zoom and Google classroom, IYM Online exposes participants to inspiring science and technology content through a range of different virtual experiences.


IYM Anytime is an online platform where users can immerse themselves in the world of STEMM.  IYM Anytime can be accessed from anywhere, anytime. Plus it’s completely free.
