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.

Science Literacy Week 2021

To celebrate Science Literacy Week 2021, WISEatlantic partnered with the Tantallon Public Library for a virtual workshop.

This year’s theme was climate, so we brought in Dr. Aldona Wiacek to present her research on air quality and its relation to our environment. Following her talk, participants learned how to tackle the abundance of fake news out there on important topics, including climate change. The workshop introduced those in attendance to various ways of recognizing fake news before putting their fact-checking skills to the test in a Science Communication activity on the topic.
