Girls in Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) is a weekly STEM workshop series for teenage girls offered at five of our library system’s locations during the month of June. Participants get to meet influential women in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, learn about STEM opportunities and get hands-on experience with STEM technologies.
Each two-hour session consists of a presentation from a female professional in a STEM field, followed by a one-hour activity that explores and builds STEM skills among the participants.
GEMS is an annual program, now in its fourth year, with registration open to a total of 125 girls. In 2017, the program was offered once a week at each location from Monday, June 5, to Monday, June 29.
A monthlong series at Cobb County Public Library inspires teenage girls to broaden their horizons about science.
