Each year we select 40 young people (age 14-18) to be part in a 10 days STEM-leadership science camp in which their develop their science competences and leadership skills. After this, they’re part of the Kimlu Network, where they connect to different areas of STEM and work to have a positive impact in their communities and countries.
