The Girls Get WISE Science Retreat is one of WISEatlantic’s signature events. The retreat takes place every spring at Mount Saint Vincent University where we have 60 girls in grades 7-10 participate in fun and engaging STEM activities. We also organize similar Girls Get WISE events all over Atlantic Canada, and host or sponsor around five each year.
Participants have the opportunity to chat with female role models who work in various SETT careers, this is a great opportunity for girls to explore careers that they may have never heard of!
The 2021 Girls Get WISE Retreat will be held virtually on May 1 from 10:30-3:00pm (AST). The 2021 Science Retreat is open to those who identify as girls in Atlantic Canada in grades 7-10. Early registration is preferred as STEM materials for activities will be mailed in advance. Registration opens February 22nd and will end on March 26th, no exceptions.
Activities will include STEM trivia, virtual escape room, role model session, and a Crime Scene Analysis (CSI) activity!
