WiSE Outreach is looking forward to hosting events in person again! In the Fall Term, we will be hosting our Fall EngSci Day. In the Winter Term, we will be hosting our Winter EngSci Day events, and our yearly Badge Day event. Our weekly Elementary School Workshops and High School Outreach Events will run throughout the year.
Our 2023-24 Initiatives
An opportunity for Girls in Gr. 1-6 to come and learn more about STEM! EngSci Day is a fantastic way to meet other girls who are also interested in STEM and to learn in a fun and inspiring environment. We are extremely happy and excited to announce that EngSci Day will be an in-person event come Fall 2023! We are really looking forward to coming together again to conduct experiments and activities.
Hosted at Queen’s University, Badge Day is an annual event that invites Girl Guides from the Kingston area to participate in STEM experiments and learn about Women in different STEM fields. Depending on what kind of experiments are completed, participants can earn a Science or Engineering Girl Guides Badge to wrap up their fun-filled day!
Coming In March 2024
The Winston Churchill Outreach Program is a weekly program for girls in Grades 4 to 6 at Winston Churchill Elementary School in Kingston. Our student volunteers organize science and engineering-related activities for elementary students, such as science experiments or design challenges during their lunch and recess.
Our High School program strives to educate and encourage students to consider a future in STEM. We prepare presentations based on the Ontario curriculum for each STEM subject, and put a fun and interesting spin on the lesson – whether that be an experiment, demonstration, or game! We also aim to alleviate anxiety related to post-secondary education by teaching how to apply, decide which school to attend, and more! This year, we will be running in-person and online presentations.
