UWM at Waukesha invites you to join us for our 11th annual Girls’ in Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) conference on Saturday May 4th, 2019!
Our annual GEMS program brings middle school girls and their parents, teachers, community leaders, and successful professional women together in an effort to boost knowledge and interest in various areas of math, science, and engineering.
Our unique program allows girls ages 11 to 14 to choose five, hands-on workshops taught by successful professionals in those fields to establish connections and friendships with like-minded girls of the same age group. Our 2019 Keynote Speaker, Andrea Bequest, a physician assistant working in internal medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital!
