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.

Partnerships Program Funding Announcement 2020

We are pleased to announce that the recipients of the 2020-2021 Partnerships Program Funding are...

Diversity of Nature and Fundy Geological Museum! Congratulations to both groups.

Diversity of Nature is a new organization led by female Black, Indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC) graduate students at Dalhousie University. Diversity of Nature is an initiative aimed at empowering BIPOC students at both the secondary and post-secondary level across Nova Scotia. They pitched a program called Diversity of Nature Field Camp which will provide an immersive week-long ecological field expedition for BIPOC students. You can learn more about this program at www.diversityofnature.com/

The Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro, NS is the world centre for experiencing the geology of the Bay of Fundy. Founded in December 1993, the museum is operated locally by a registered non-profit, the Cumberland Geological Society, on behalf of the Nova Scotia Museum. The museum pitched their first ever all-girls overnight experience at the museum called ‘Paleontologist for a Weekend’. Participants will stay overnight at the museum and take part in fun and educational activities including: a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum gallery, fossil lab, and rarely seen collections room; casting their own fossil in the lab; and travelling to the nearby Wasson Bluff dinosaur dig site, with the opportunity to excavate fossils alongside our experts and ask questions over a bonfire. More information on the Fundy Geological Museum can be found at: fundygeological.novascotia.ca/

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.
