Greystone GEMS Club Presents at the Hoover Expo

The Greystone Girls Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS) team did a great job presenting their project at the Hoover GEMS Expo on Saturday, February 1st! The GEMS club is a state-wide initiative to give girls more opportunities to explore their interests in math, science, and engineering. Our GEMS team chose to study energy and chain reactions. The girls researched Rube Goldberg as well as types of energy and simple/complex machines and displayed this research on a trifold board. As a final challenge, the students worked to create a Rube Goldberg chain reaction machine. This proved to be a challenging endeavor with many opportunities for improvement. Girls in GEMS teams from around Hoover got together on February 1st to share their research, listen to amazing speakers, and participate in hands on science and math challenges. It was an inspiring event!
