The WISE Institute provides STEM Enrichment Activities for K-12 in a variety of ways.

WISE hosts a luncheon at the South's BEST Championship competition each fall for participating girls and female mentors. A guest speaker with an expertise in the area of each year's game gives a presentation about her career to luncheon attendees.

WISE enhances the Greater Eastern Alabama Regional Science and Engineering Fair by offering a panel discussion "Taking the Science and Engineering Fair into the Future" featuring a variety of accomplished scientists and engineers that share their experiences as a researcher with the participants and their families.
 

The WISE Coordinator serves as the Affiliate Director for Engineering for Project Lead the Way (PLTW).  PLTW is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative STEM education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S.  Students in PLTW programs create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems while applying what they learn in math and science.  The hands-on, project-based engineering courses engage students on multiple levels, expose them to areas of study that they typically do not pursue and provide them with a foundation and proven path to college and career success.  The PLTW curriculum is founded in the fundamental problem-solving and critical-thinking skills taught in traditional career and technical education, but at the same time integrates national academic standards and STEM principles to create a model for 21st century learning.
