AINSE Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WISE) School

The AINSE Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WISE) School was an intensive three-day residential workshop held from 4 December - 6 December 2017.

43 female students learnt about the opportunities they can experience in nuclear science and engineering, and how AINSE supports STEM students at varying levels of their student pathway.

The program showcased successful women in STEM in order to give the students the belief that they too can progress their careers in this arena.
