GEMS

What is GEMS?  GEMS is place where girls can try things that either won’t or can’t be done in the regular classroom. Girls will explore engineering, a subject that is not touched in elementary science. Girls will delve into higher-grade math and science that will challenge them without putting them under undue pressure, because they don’t have to pass a test on it.   They can explore and fail and start again without pressure to get the one right answer.  They can discover. GEMS is also a place where girls can get messy. They can get dirty, use tools, mix stuff up, and generally DO the science that is not possible to do during school. Each and every girl will get her hands in the activity, something that teachers usually struggle with due to time constraints.
