Girls Get WISE Science Retreats

Join us for a day filled with fun and interactive STEM activities, and meet inspiring women in STEM careers!

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!



Due to Covid-19, our 2020 Girls Get WISE Science Retreat has been postponed. We hope to be able to reschedule in Fall of 2020 but please keep checking for further updates.

For this who already registered, you may keep your registration (and spot) until a decision is made. If you prefer a refund please contact Sally at, just note that if you receive a refund your spot in the retreat will lost, and there are limited spaces.
