Let's Celebrate Women & Girls in Science

Updated: Mar 18



WINNIPEG, MB. - The world needs science, and science needs women and girls.


Women have led ground-breaking research into public health, vaccines, treatments and innovative technology, and been on the front lines of COVID-19 response as scientists, health care workers and more.


I had the pleasure os speaking with former Shaftesbury student Nusraat Masood from the University of Manitoba and program administrator of W.I.S.E. Learn more about the program by clicking here.


Women in Science and Engineering - or WISE for short - is an outreach group from the University of Manitoba. Since 1990 the group has enthralled, educated and motivated the youth, including young girls, into exciting careers in Engineering and Science. They provide hands-on, memorable, curriculum-based workshops for schools, clubs, camps and more. WISE reaches more than twenty thousand students each year in Manitoba, delivering workshops in dozens of Manitoba communities and hosting camps in a dozen locations annually including 5 First Nations! Whether you're a student, a parent, or a teacher, there's plenty for you on their website. WISE would love to be a part of your educational experience!
