Our 8th Annual GEMS conference will be held April 23, 2016!
Registration is open for GEMS!
To register, please complete the registration information sheet. Registrations will only be accepted accompanied with the GEMS Liability/Release form and are taken on a first-come basis. Workshops will not be assigned without the enclosed forms or payment. To secure your spot in
the workshop, please mail or bring your registration to the Continuing Education office at 1500 N University Dr., Waukesha, WI 53188.
Sorry, registrations are not available online or by phone. Workshop choices are not guaranteed. Though we will do our best to place girls in their top four choices, in order to accomodate everyone we cannot guarantee spots in workshops. Each year, we strive to encourage young girls to pursue their interests in STEM fields by presenting them with the opportunity to speak to and learn from those who have already attained success in their field.
We hope to present girls with the opportunity to make connections with new people and those like-minded individuals to encourage friendships and personal connections. For this reason, we are unable to honor requests for girls to be put in the same workshops as a friend.
The GEMS conference is for designed for middle school girls, ages 11-14. If you are not 11 years old, you will need to wait to attend the GEMS conference. Registrations will not be accepted without the enclosed liability form and workshop choice insert completed.
We cannot honor requests for girls to be in the same workshops as a friend.
Workshop assignments are final.
Please be aware that changes to workshops cannot and will not be made once they are confirmed.
A big thank-you to all of our sponsors who helped make 2015 GEMS possible!
