GEMS Girls in STEM Program Application Open

The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) would like to invite your middle school’s girls to join the Girls in Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) program. GEMS is a free, volunteer-run after-school science enrichment program for Seattle 7th to 8th grade girls to explore STEM through hands-on activities.


This program explores STEM fields as diverse as forensics, oceanography, astrophysics, and neuroscience through hands-on activities with women scientists currently employed in these fields.  In addition, we organize several field trips a year ranging from doing coding activities at Google to educational tide pool walks in conjunction with the Seattle Aquarium.   GEMS meetings run once a month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm from November to May and are offered at two locations: the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in downtown Seattle and South Shore PK-8 School in South Seattle. Dates for this year are listed on our website, seattleawis.org/awis-events/gems/.  The application for GEMS closes on October 14, 2019 and is available at our website, seattleawis.org/awis-events/gems/.


Direct link to the application can be found here.


Please contact seattlegems@gmail.com if you have any questions about the program.
