Women in Science and Technology (WIST)

New Hampshire's Women in Science & Technology (WIST) program strives to inspire and motivate young women to pursue science, engineering, and technology careers. The WIST facebook page is for middle-school, high-school and college women deciding what careers are open to them, which paths will help them to reach their career goal, and who can assist them along the way. This facebook page was established by the NH Space Grant program to support young women in their career planning, preparation and early professional years. The WIST conferences are planned in conjunction with NHSGC Affiliates including FIRST and the Community College System of NH.
