This is a series of monthly workshops that invite young women in grades 8 to 12 to explore math in a non-traditional environment. They are part of our summer program, however, there's no commitment to attend the summer camp when coming to the workshops. Students are welcome to join GEMM for any sessions they can and want. It is not mandatory to come to all, as sessions are independent.
We welcome all students, whether they already have an interest in math or not, and even if they don't like math (so far). GEMM are a great way to get to know a different side of math and feel comfortable doing math. Our workshops often link math with other topics that are of interest to young girls, like art.
GEMM is for those students who are interested in attending the summer camp and want to start preparing for it, but also for those who can't or are unsure about attending the summer camp but want to give it a try.
The workshops will generally be held on the third Saturday of every month (although there are a few exceptions), from 10 am to 2 pm.
