The WISE Program at Garrison Forest School

Through a 15-year partnership with The Johns Hopkins University, the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program at Garrison Forest School allows juniors and seniors to obtain hands-on research experience in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

WISE participants conduct world-class research mentored by Johns Hopkins University professors and graduate students for two afternoons a week for about 15 weeks of a semester. Students are guided through diverse aspects of assisting in a research lab, allowing them to learn at a level usually reserved for graduate school.

WISE is supported by The James Center at Garrison Forest, which connects students with organizations and non-profits to provide opportunities in experiential learning. Andrea Perry, Director of The James Center and coordinator of WISE, notes, “WISE gives students the chance to be tested in a real-world research context as they develop confidence, collaborative skills, and practical lab experience.”
