GEMS is for girls in grades 5th  and 6th in Monroe County.  Girls will have the opportunity work with female role models and enjoy the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)!

The morning will open with a Career Expo from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.  At the expo, girls and their families can explore and learn more about STEM career opportunities.  If you are interested in exhibiting please let us know by either downloading this form and returning to our office OR completing the Career Expo google form.  

After the Career Expo girls will be divided into small groups to work with female experts in STEM education and industry.  Groups will participate in five hands-on activities in the fields of engineering design, chemistry, biology, forensic science, technology, and math.  

We are lining up a great team of presenters! If you are interested in leading a STEM Breakout Activity please email Jean Schick at  This is limited to ten STEM partners.
