The 2017 GEMS Conference will be held on Saturday, May 13th, 2017!!
Registration will open March 1st, 2017. Keep your eyes on our website for the new 2017 GEMS brochure this spring!
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.
Take a few minutes to see what our GEMS conference is all about and watch our Girls, Engineering, Math & Science video (click here for video)!
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 2016 GEMS possible!
