Getting Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS) Workshops
Due to popular demand, the University of Illinois Graduate Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is holding a series of GEMS workshops both semesters this year! GEMS is a female-focused pair of free workshops for 5th-8th graders on the many ways in which mathematics interacts with and influences the world around us. Our goals are to present interesting math in a fun, hands-on way and encourage students from traditionally underrepresented genders to get engaged with STEM.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon about our Fall 2019 workshops!
