Every year Continuing Education hosts up to 200 middle school girls at our GEMS (girls, engineering, math, and science) conference.  This year GEMS will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Registration is set to open on March 1st.  We are always looking for women STEM professionals to do a hands-on workshop! Please call our office 262-521-5460 or email wakce@uwc.edu for more information.



Our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Day continued this year at the UWM at Waukesha campus.  Students from 6 different schools spent the day at UWM at Waukesha exploring different STEM career fields by attending hands-on workshops. Students ended their day by engineering a container for our annual egg drop and earned their certificate of completion in the UWM at Waukesha - Milwaukee County Extension 4H Systematics program. Certificates will be awarded at their graduation ceremony in May.
