Girls Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS) is an educational program designed to actively involve girls in STEM related activities through formal and informal learning environments.  The GEMS Program supports the national need to close the STEM gender gap utilizing eight teaching strategies to encourage self-confidence and elevate interest in the areas of math and science with female students.  GEMS-U teacher practices focus on these strategies to strengthen girls’ beliefs regarding their abilities in math and science.
