The greatest achievements of mankind have been possible when teams work together.
Whether it is exploring the depths of our solar system, to artificial intelligence or vaccines for polio, teams of people working together make the best inventions and ideas that will change your world. We think of them as ‘crews’.
Every activity at YoMo is created and delivered by someone working in science and tech. Each of these people work within a specific crew. Learn about these exciting ideas, and these unique crews, by participating in the “Choose your Crew” trail.
