2019-20 GEM Workshop Flyer.png



We're hosting our Girls Engaged in Making (GEM) workshops for girls ages 8-15. Studies have shown that most girls lose interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by age 15. Our GEM Workshops are aimed at providing girls with hands-on activities and experiences to keep them involved in STEM. GEM is a drop-off program that is fun, engaging, educational, and shows the numerous ways STEM topics can be pursued both in their future educations and as potential career pathways. If we support a young woman in STEM, then she can change the world.
