GEMS + BROS Philosophy

  • Let the students take the lead
  • Do the STEM activities; don’t just talk about them
  • All students have the potential to be interested in STEM—this is not just for students identified as gifted
  • Experience-repeat-experience success in a non-risky environment
  • All students can have fun and learn
  • “You can’t break it.” This is especially important in technology
  • Dream big—there is nothing you cannot try
  • Get messy and stop the ick factor
  • Draw out the "quiet" who holds back
