The Girls Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS) Club at Greystone Elementary is a small club of 4-8 girls in fourth and fifth grades. This group of girls is selected through an application process each October. The girls meet weekly in the sponsor's classroom beginning in October. GEMS is a state-wide educational program designed to actively involve girls in STEM related activities through formal and informal learning environments. Through this club, the girls will work with the sponsor to determine a common STEM interest, research this topic through math and science investigations, and create a project centered around this topic. Please contact the sponsor, Maria Beard, for more information.
GEMS Applications are due on Tuesday, October 29th, 2019.
We are thankful for the many 4th and 5th grade girls who applied for GEMS this year! It is exciting to see so many girls interested in science and math and willing to take on new challenges. Our team is limited to 8 girls by GEMS guidelines. If you did not make the team this year, I encourage you to apply again next year. The GEMS club is also available at Berry Middle School.
Parents, I encourage you to seek out other science and math opportunities in the community as well. If I hear of any coding, engineering, or math challenges that might benefit students from our school, I will do my best to share them with teachers or on Greystone News.
