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.

COVID-19 Programming Update

***Important Notice about WISEatlantic’s response to the evolving situation with COVID-19.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and following federal and provincial directives, we will be postponing our Halifax 2020 Girls Get WISE Science Retreat. We are currently working to secure an alternate date which we hope to announce by early May. However, as this is a rapidly evolving situation, this could change so we encourage you to monitor our website and our social media channels for further updates.

We will also provide an update as soon as possible regarding the 2020 Pictou Girls Get WISE Science Retreat currently scheduled for May 9th at the NSCC Pictou Location. As of right now, NSCC locations are cancelling all events until April 30th and will reassess at that time.

We thank you for your patience during these unsettling times.

The WISEatlantic Team.
