WISEST Summer Research Program

Sponsored by WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science & Technology), this program provides an opportunity for young women and young men who have completed Grade 11 to gain firsthand information about diverse fields in Science, Engineering and Technology disciplines. Participants work as paid research assistants on a project in an area that is less-traditional for their gender for six weeks during the summer. Participation in this program helps students broaden their awareness of career opportunities and encourages them to explore a future in a variety of fields.
