STEM Program for Girls

Editor's Note: I'll be turning commenting on for this post and the ones thereafter.

Here's info on a great STEM program for girls. 
Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science (GEMS) is a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) enrichment program for 7th and 8th grade girls currently attending a Seattle public school. The goal of the program is to encourage girls to maintain and broaden their interest in STEM topics by providing hands-on activities, mentoring, field trips, and information about a variety of fields.


Who can participate in GEMS?
Any 7th or 8th grade student who identifies as a girl and is currently attending a Seattle public school is welcome to apply.
How do I apply?
The application for the 2019-2020 GEMS program is now open. Please fill out the application here by October 14, 2019.
We try to accommodate every applicant, but unfortunately do not always have space. We strive to choose applicants with a diverse range of experiences, interests, and backgrounds that represent the student population of the Seattle Public School District.
How much does GEMS cost?
The program is free to students, but requires transportation to and from all events. We often find that girls who would benefit most are unable to find transport to the sessions, so we are very grateful to parents who offer to provide carpool seats to other families. GEMS is funded by annual dues from the Seattle Area chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS-SA) membership, and is led entirely by volunteers.
