We are thrilled to see the beginning of the first Jr. GEMS club for third and fourth grade girls. Catch them early!
Jr. GEMS began through the request of a parent, who wanted her daughter and other young girls to retain their interest and curiosity in math and science.
Wow, that sounds familiar!
The club uses activities on this site, and also has take-home sheets for further investigation. Check back here often for new activities.
Scratch--computer programming and animation for kids
Aerodynamics--making cars move faster
Batteries and bulbs--Light 'em up!
Activities about topology , or beginning network design
The Jr.GEMS club was honored to receive a mini-grant for start-up and a field trip from the Mid-Atlantic Girls Collaborative through its collaboration with the GEMS club already in the school.
