Fervone Goings, WISEST team lead, spoke to our club at Tuesday's weekly meeting about equipping and empowering girls and women to pursue and embrace careers in STEM--science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science & Technology) is a unit of the University of Alberta.

The Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview sponsored four grade six girls from Delton School to attend the Choices Conference (hosted by WISEST) in February, engage in hands-on activities, watch cool demonstrations, and learn about the fascinating world of STEM. Seeds planted? Here's hoping!
