The Get WISE Foundation was started by a small group of women Engineers at General Motors in 2008. Statistics have shown that about 13% of total engineers worldwide are women. Determined to make a difference, they created a program that would help young girls get excited about careers in STEM . The Get WISE team has connected with over 2000 young women over the years, changing lives and building stronger communities!
To educate young girls about various career opportunities related to science & engineering while encouraging them to pursue a college education.
Get WISE is a one day event for young Girls grades 5th- 8th from the area local schools. The event is hosted at different facilities and the day's activities involve "hands on" competitive challenges, an educational tour, and opportunities to interact with professional women, lunch, prizes and LOTS OF FUN!
