We're hosting our Girls Empowered with Math and Science (GEMS) 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 GEMS Workshops are aimed at providing girls with hands-on activities and experiences to keep them involved in STEM. Each month, GEMS will study the work of a renowned female scientist while engaging in hands-on lessons. GEMS is a drop-off program that is fun, 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. First Saturday of the month from 10am-12pm Lesson: Annie Easley-Aeronautical Engineer GEMS will prepare for lift-off as they engineer a hand glider and test it against various aerodynamic challenges while also discovering the work of Annie Easley, a computer scientist, mathematician, and rocket scientist that worked on Centaur technology at NASA to boost rockets into space.
