We had a great turn-out for our 2nd annual Senior Girls Get WISE Science Summer Camp this year, 18 girls ages 15 & 16 participated. We had a great week learning about various STEM professions such as Entomology, Psychology, Embryology, Computer Scientist and more!
Campers also participated in many engaging STEM activities such as bee classification, viewing chick embryos. doing flame tests in Chemistry, and learning how an EEG works.

We had a blast at our 6th annual Girls Get WISE Science Summer Camp! The girls had a full week of activities including zebrafish development, outdoor scavenger hunt, coding their own Mad Libs, egg drop, and so much more!
We want to thank our camp sponsor Lockheed Martin Canada for coming in to do a session on 3D printing! If you’d like to view photos of the camp, click here.
The NSERC Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering are pleased to release a new report entitled "Analysis of the Distribution of Gender in STEM Fields in Canada". This report, compiled by Andrea Perreault, takes a focused look at the percentages of women and minority groups in the STEM professions in all regions of Canada.
The full report is available on our resource page.
