Educators can explore the pages on the GEMS website and find out about the organization’s purpose, history, activities, research, and resources for encouraging girls to maybe even start a club of their own. The website offers resources for starting a club, research on the impact of clubs such as GEMS, gender equity research, tips for teachers and parents, activities to encourage girls in math and science, and links for girls to explore.
