Good to know that people thought of the Merrell twins to promote STEM to younger girls. And it is also great that the Merrell twins are making use of their social responsibility through their platform to raise awareness of STEM.
I wonder if its youtube itself or NGO non-government organizations who are behind it. Well, whoever they are i just hope that they will continue to reach out to younger women to promote Stem through the influential people in social media. I really believe that social media have a huge impact to the younger generation.
I used to watch them before and its really cool that they are now promoting Stem.
