GEMS has established partnerships and working relationships with many other organizations serving girls in STEM.
SciGirls: We are piloting curricula to determiine changes in girls' attitudes toward STEM fields.
National Girls Collaborative Project: We participated in the CS Open project with NGCP and Google to build capacity in GEMS leaders in teaching Computer Science to our members.
NCWIT: GEMS is a member of the K-12 Alliance, focusing on increasing the recruitment, retention, and advancement of girls in computing and technology studies and careers, and inspiring girls to become more interested and confident in computing.
Click2SciencePD visited our clubs to see how we engage girls in STEM. Their site has multiple videos and professional development tools for using STEM to excite children about science.
GEMS has been both a sponsor and a participant in this and other Maker Faires. We were featured at the 2015 New York Maker Faire as part of Microsoft research.
GEMS is working with the Lego Foundation to increase the number of girls and rural children participating in FIRST Lego League Jr.
GEMS members learned computer programming and supported girls in their community through a grant from NCWIT's Aspire IT, which connects young female computer science students with girls in informal settings. See our work.
GEMS clubs are partners with Crypto Club to increase girls' interest in codes, ciphers and cybersecurity.
