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 2019 Girls Get WISE Science Retreat took place on April 13, at Mount Saint Vincent University. 52 girls participated in three hands-on STEM activities and spoke with 7 women in STEM about their careers!
