WISE, created in 2006, stands for Women in Science and Engineering. This initiative hopes to empower women in STEM all across New Jersey and we do that through hosting different types of events geared towards young women in STEM. We mainly host Badge Night events in collaboration with the Girl Scouts Heart of NJ. Recently we have partnered with Triangle Elementary School for an event called The World of DNA.
WISE exists to allow young women to gain exposure in science and technology and to encourage interested individuals to pursue their STEM passions. For the past 14 years, WISE has held many events with the Girl Scouts Heart of NJ and other local Girl Scout troops. Hosting events and awarding badges through our Badge Nights has helped us reach over 2,000 young girls within NJ alone. In the future, we hope to sustain our mission for the next generation of innovators.
