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. Applicants of all genders are welcome to apply, and gender is not considered in admitting applicants.
We are working hard to plan engaging, illuminating, and above all safe GEMS events. We appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate COVID precautions and restrictions, and hope to have updated information available soon!
