Spring Into STEM Festival

Each year, Young Women In Bio celebrates the spring season with its annual Spring Into STEM Festival. Now in its third year, participating YWIB chapters host a variety of STEM-focused events, panel discussions, and tours to present to young girls a diverse array of careers in STEM, ranging from scientific research, drug development, agricultural biotech, urban forestry to biotech entrepreneurship.

Young Women In Bio Presents: The Future of Life Sciences & Tech

Young Women In Bio is presenting a series of events focused on “The Future of Life Sciences and Technology” to engage young girls in discussions and activities on how life sciences and technology are working together to solve health and other life sciences-related problems. Our first event was held with great success in New York on February 28, 2018, and additional events in this series will take place in other cities.
