Do you love science, Math, and fun experiments? Do you enjoy hanging out with friends?
If your answer is yes, then Jr. GEMS Club (Girls Excelling in Math and Science) is for you! In Jr. GEMS we design experiments, learn about the world of science and have a lot of fun as well.

Club Details:

  • Open to girls grades 3-5
  • After-school club
  • Meet monthly by grade
  • All equipment provided

Parent volunteers are always welcome and highly appreciated as the girls are doing lots of fun STEM things in a very short time! (Child Protection Compliance Required)

We often get asked…why an all-girls group? The organization that started GEMS (Girls Excelling in Math and Science) has been working since 1994 to increase interest in STEM for girls in elementary and middle school and to expose girls to the fun and wonder of these fields.

“A recent study of fourth graders showed that 66 percent of girls and 68 percent of boys reported liking science. But something else starts happening in elementary school. […] The persistence of the stereotypes start to turn girls off, and by eighth grade, boys are twice as interested in STEM careers as girls are.” (National Science Foundation (NSF), 2007) ​​
