WISEatlantic aims to shift gendered STEM stereotypes. We empower girls to consider Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-based careers by raising their awareness of the diversity of jobs within these fields, and enabling them to visualize themselves working in these fields. WISEatlantic also supports early career women in STEM through professional development and networking opportunities.

STEM Spotlight Series

WISEatlantic has always been a dedicated force in encouraging girls to pursue STEM careers. Over the years, we have engaged with youth through one day retreats, week-long camp experiences, role model workshops, and more. Providing women and girls with opportunities to explore what STEM has to offer is something we’re passionate about, but we’re not the only ones. Read more about our new STEM Spotlight Series...

Our STEM Spotlight Series aims to highlight organizations in Atlantic Canada that promote inclusion in STEM; this can extend to any groups that are currently underrepresented in science careers. We want to bring attention to the initiatives fighting for inclusion of women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ individuals, and/or other equity-deserving groups. If you know, or are a part of, an organization striving to increase representation for marginalized groups in STEM, we encourage you to reach out to us at WISEatlantic@msvu.ca for more details on how to get your initiative featured.

STEM Spotlight posts will be featured on our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and a booklet of all featured organizations will be produced and featured on our website for download.

Living WISEly Contest

Did you hear?! We are having our first BIG contest for girls!

Until January 15, youth who identify as female between the ages of 14-16 can submit their application for our Living WISEly App Idea Design Contest. Living WISEly is an opportunity for teenage girls to apply their creativity to one of the most heavily discussed topics in today’s classrooms: SustainabilitySustainability refers to meeting your own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. There are four types of sustainability: human, social, economic, and environmental. 

We encourage participants to develop their own interpretations of sustainability and define it in any way they want. At this point in time where the need to create habits that support the well-being of our planet and beyond is so vital, we want to challenge you to come up with a design for your own App that either promotes or is related to the above definition of Sustainability in some way.

We have some fabulous prizes to give away, first place is $500 technology gift card!, so be sure to head to wiseatlantic.ca/living-wisely/ for full contest rules and eligibility.
