We’d also appreciate if you can mention the first meeting to your classes. If you have any girls who would be a good fit for the club, please encourage them to attend.

GEMS is a program that builds capacity in young women interested in the STEM fields. We educate our girls on how to be successful in these fields through field trips, guest-speakers, and service learning efforts.

Feel free to contact Ms. Lain, Ms. Whittaker, Ms. Gonzales or any STEAM teacher if you have any questions.
