Welcome to GEMS!

Girls Empowered in Medicine and Science (GEMS) is a day camp and mentorship program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls formed in partnership with the Center for Excellence and Youth Education (CEYE). Our goal is to serve as a support network and safe discussion space for young girls to develop meaningful interpersonal relationships, promote resiliency, cultivate leadership, improve team-building skills, and learn about STEM career pathways while applying those skills in practical and real-life settings.

The program will include a variety of discussion activities, workshops, and team-building exercises.  There will also be fun hands-on clinical and science activities (think…dissections, strawberry DNA extraction, ultrasound, first aid, anesthesia simulator, and more!).
