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)!

Morning Expo:

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.
