Getting Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS) Workshops

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.
