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 6 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 SETT careers.
During the summer of 2017, WISEatlantic hosted TWO Girls Get WISE Science Summer Camps! Our regular camp for girls 12-14 years old and a new camp for girls 15-16 years old. We were fortunate to have the Federal Science Minister, the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, visit our August 2017 camp where she shared with the girls her experiences as a science researcher as well as some motivational words on sticking with math and science courses throughout high school.
