Are you a professional in the fields of Engineering, Math, or Science? We are accepting workshop volunteers for the spring of 2015. If you have an idea for a GEMS workshop and would like to volunteer, please contact Holly Wehrhahn.
We are excited to offer our annual GEMS program which will bring middle school girls and their parents, teachers, community leaders, and successful professional women together in an effort to boost knowledge and interest in various areas of math, science, and engineering. Our unique program will allow girls ages 11 to 14 to choose various hands-on workshops taught by successful professionals in those fields to establish connections and friendships with like-minded girls of the same age group.
Please check back for more registration information - coming soon!
