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 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 2017 Girls Get WISE Science Retreat took place Saturday, April 1st, 2017. Registration sold out in two days, and we had an awesome day where we explored science through hands-on activities like a forensics exploration, and creating a bungee jump for an egg! J.D. Irving LTD was the main sponsor for the 2017 retreat, thank you!
