WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science, and Technology) hosts its annual SET Conference (Science, Engineering, and Technology) at the University of Alberta (U of A) on Saturday, November 30, 2019. Students are encouraged to register (the conference is $50).
WISEST is dedicated to encouraging young people to explore fields in which their gender is currently underrepresented. The SET Conference is designed for students in grades 10-12 who are curious about careers in science, engineering, and technology, and it is an exceptional opportunity to explore options in these fields.
WISEST also has a summer research program that runs from July 2 to August 13, 2020. Students accepted into the program work as paid research interns at the U of A. Applications open February 1, 2020, and more information can be found here.
