Middle and High School Internships
BE WISE Application Process to Open Soon!
Application Period: October–November 2018
BE WiSE engages young women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences in collaboration with the region’s research, industry and academic institutions. BE WiSE goals are to:
- Stimulate young women’s interest in STEM through interactions with professionals
- Increase participants’ opportunities and knowledge of STEM fields of study
- Develop a community of young women (grades 7–12) engaged in science learning through out-of-school activities
- Sustain interest and involvement through alumnae and ongoing participation for women in science at all levels
BE WiSE invites girls in grades 7 and 8 to Science Overnights to explore their interest in science, hosts events for BE WiSE members in high school to encourage their selection of more courses in science and math, and exposes these girls to adult women scientists who share their knowledge and passion and experiences with science and engineering careers.
BE WiSE selects girls from all across San Diego County and has sustained contact with over five hundred girls over the past 14 years.
Girls must apply for BE WiSE in grades 7 and 8. The application period is October–November of each year. For more information on the program, please visit http://www.rhfleet.org/be-wise or contact email@example.com.
UCSD EnABLEs Students to Better Understand and Experience These Careers Before College
The UCSD San Diego Supercomputer Center is partnering with two undergraduate campus organizations, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Women in Computing (WIC), to provide a unique mentoring experience for students in grades 10-12 called ABLE (Anita Borg Leadership and Engagement program). The program’s mission is to engage young women in the fields of computer science and engineering through workshops, campus and community events, corporate visits and undergraduate mentor matches. By providing a first hand look into these two areas of interest and highlighting a variety of career opportunities in an encouraging and supportive environment, it is our hope that these young women continue on to pursue careers in STEM fields.
