The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Forum brings together female high school students, faculty and students from area universities and colleges, and accomplished women from the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The first half of the evening consists of a Mentoring Dinner where attendees can network with each other – this is really an opportunity for the students with an interest in STEM to talk one on one with and hear stories and advice from female professionals and college students.
Following the dinner is a Public Panel Discussion featuring a panel of female distinguished STEM professionals from across the country. Past panelists include: the retired Chairman and CEO for the DuPont Company; an Aerospace Engineer from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and active and retired executives from IBM, Merck, Mars Inc., Daiichi Sankyo, and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Winter break is all about the coolest science. During Super Cool Science camps Dec. 26-28, campers will learn about the chemical reactions that make things cold, and how the cold affects animals, people, and the planet. If you are looking for childcare during those days, send them to the Center. https://wp.me/P9QlDL-iOj

A very warm thank you to everyone who supported giving the gift of science to underserved children in the area. Yesterday, for #GivingTuesday, we raised a total of $2,695! This is equivalent to providing a field trip to the Da Vinci Science Center for over 250 students! Now, these students will receive STEM learning opportunities who would not be able to enjoy them without your support.
Let us continue to spread generosity and bring science to life and lives to science. Thank you for helping inspire the futures of tomorrow’s scientists, inventors, and engineers!
#GivingTuesday may be over, though the season of giving is just beginning. Give the gift of science today in 3 easy ways:
-Call: 484.664.1002 ext. 107
-Mail: 3145 Hamilton Boulevard Bypass, Allentown, PA 18103
