Women in the Sciences and Engineering (WISE)

Penn State Wilkes-Barre's Women in the Sciences and Engineering (WISE) program is for young women in grades 6-8.  The primary mission of the WISE program is to facilitate the entry and success of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

The focus of the 2013 WISE program was The 3 Dimensional World.  Students learned how to design an object, then fabricate the object using 3D printing technology. They used the CubeX 3D printer. The young women also engaged in interactive career exploration activities, received valuable information about STEM occupations, and visited a local business to see 3 dimensional technology in the workforce.  Celeste Baine, a biomedical engineer, and award-winning author of over 20 books on engineering education and careers presented information on engineering disciplines via a live Skype broadcast from her home in Oregon.

Check back in late March for more information about the 2014 WISE program, which will take place from August 12-14, 2014.


The WISE program at Penn State Wilkes-Barre is made possible by the generous contribution of Procter & Gamble through their Live, Learn and Thrive grant.
