GEMS (Girls Excelling in Math and Science) clubs were started in 1994 to encourage students, especially girls, to pursue education and careers in STEM fields, particularly technology, engineering and related high-paying, entrepreneurial enterprises.

GEMS clubs strive to insure that a child sees themselves as a change agent or a problem-solver, a possible technology entrepreneur, engineer or a scientist, and as a person who makes a difference. 

Join us as we work to provide opportunities for students to engage with STEM all over the world.

We present virtual GEMS–suggestions and resources for creating your own virtual GEMS club. We tested these in Venango County, PA and had a wonderful time!
