 16th Annual Girls in Engineering, Math and Science

Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020

GEMS is a one-day event where girls have the opportunity to participate in workshops facilitated by local women in STEAM related fields. We are excited to announce that the annual Girls in Engineering, Math and Science "GEMS" will be held VIRTUALLY on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020. All girls in grades 4th – 12th are invited to come discover, explore and create with various STEAM activities. You do not have to be a registered Girl Scout to attend. Check out the Virtual GEMS 2020 FAQ to learn more!

Get ready for an amazing adventure at home! This fall we're bringing the fun to you with the first ever VIRTUAL Girls in Engineering, Math and Science event. 

This virtual event allows girls to choose how they want to participate - both “plugged” or “unplugged” options are available. The event will start and end with a live zoom session. Live sessions are a great way to connect with other participants, community leaders and event staff. 

Registered participants will receive access to three age appropriate recorded workshop video presentations enabling them to view, pause, proceed, or replay at their leisure. Recorded workshop presentations are created by local STEAM experts. 

If girls would prefer to “unplug” and do all of the activities on their own, the GEMS workbook will help guide them as they go at their own pace. Girls will find additional STEAM activities, challenges and more throughout their workbook. 

Girls are invited to complete workshops on their own or with other registered participants in their troop/group. Videos will be added to a private link on the GSKWR main website. Girls are encouraged to stay logged into the zoom meeting and interact with other attendees via the chat box.  

We're thrilled to announce that the virtual GEMS 2020 Keynote Speaker is Stephanie Johnston, NASA Engineer!  Learn more about Stephanie here

Girls are natural-born scientists! They look at the world around them with inquisitive eyes, experiment and push boundaries, and learn as they go. Virtual workshops at 2020 GEMS will allow girls to see how they can use STEAM to make the world a better place! Registration closes November 1.
