YWIB Online

YWIB Online Platform

Young Women In Bio (YWIB) is pleased to announce the launch of its new YWIB Online platform, which includes a dedicated YouTube channel and associated Facebook page. Together, these online resources provide access to young girls across the United States and in Canada to our educational and leadership programs and other opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) free of charge. 

YWIB is launching this new initiative for young girls who are curious about STEM and want to learn more, but may not live in near one of our 13 chapter cities across the United States or in Montreal, and therefore are unable to attend our in-person events and programs.

To kick this off, we are pleased to announce the availability of our YWIB COVID-19 online resources for all students. These are intended to bring some clarity to the current pandemic and help students understand the biology, epidemiology, and global health risk of COVID-19.
