K-12 Outreach

WISE K-12

The goal of our K-12 Outreach Program is to increase participation of young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields. We offer UIC campus tours, engineering and science lab visits as well as presentations led by faculty members. Our WISE Ambassadors are eager to work with the middle and high school girls on fun and exciting projects. Our hands-on activities are designed according to the current research on how to involve girls in STEM. We inspire girls to:

    • examine fascinating areas of STEM fields
    • get engaged in fun, hands-on, open ended projects
    • develop their own way of exploring and applying knowledge
    • re-examine ideas from different perspectives
    • discover new, exciting and creative approaches to designing projects
    • ask questions and think critically
    • collaborate, work and learn together
    • be WISE

Partner Organizations

Is your organization one that promotes the advancement of local girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math? There is a great need to engage young girls in STEM since only 26% of this field workers are females. We would love to work with you to promote girls participation in STEM. Please fill out the form below or contact WISE Outreach Director 312-355-1264, Email: WISE_OutreachATuic.edu
