The Girls Get WISE Science Summer Camp is a week-long day camp that takes place at Mount Saint Vincent University every summer for the last 8 years. Girls spend the week engaged in fun STEM activities and have the opportunity to explore careers by chatting with local women working in a variety of STEM careers
CAMP UPDATE FOR SUMMER 2021:
WISEatlantic has received approval through Mount Saint Vincent University to host our summer camps in-person for 2021 with strict COVID-19 safety protocols in place that follow both provincial and campus guidelines (such as reduced participant numbers, increased hygiene practices, and mask-wearing). As we have reduced participant numbers, we have decided to offer TWO Junior camps for 2021, and reduce the duration of the camps to four days. Programming for these two camps will be the same. Below you will find descriptions for each camp, along with registration information.
Jr Camp Description (July 26-29 & August 3-6, 2021)
This four-day summer camp is for girls aged 12-14 who want to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), by doing fun hands-on labs and activities. Campers will have the opportunity to raise and track the development of their own Zebrafish embryos, along with other awesome STEM activities like chemistry experiments and engineering design challenges! Campers will also explore interesting careers by chatting with female role models working or studying in STEM fields.
Registration for both Junior camps will open on May 7, 2021 through Eventbrite. Registration is first-come, first-served.
