Girls Exploring STEM
Empowering girls by introducing them to the exciting possibilities of STEM careers.
Girls Exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (GESTEM) is an exciting event that introduces middle school girls to the wide range of opportunities in potential careers in STEM fields through hands-on workshops and interactions with engineering professionals. RMS hosts around 1,000 girls, at no cost to the girls to attend.
- Identify and strategically invite young women that may not have exposure to STEM in their current school or home atmosphere
- Demonstrate how STEM careers use math and teamwork to solve problems where helping people is an integral part of STEM careers
- Demonstrate that innovation requires diversity in gender, ethnicity, religion, culture and many other factors
