Explore science, technology, math, and engineering, while having fun on a college campus! Girls will have the opportunity to explore college programming through a variety of hands-on activities.
They meet with professional women working in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields, as well as create, explore, and discover through S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering Math) projects!
While some progress has been made, girls continue to be significantly under-represented in STEM career fields. Although girls have proven to be above average in Math and Science on many standardized tests, they continue to choose careers and majors that are not in STEM fields. G.E.M.S. is designed to motivate females to use their skills and cultivate their interest in these areas.
