Saturday, September 28th, G.E.M. Environmental was fortunate enough to be a part of the Northern Arizona Believing In Girls event, held in Flagstaff, AZ. We had a G.E.M. Environmental booth set up offering fun STEM activities such as creating slime, identifying rocks and planting basil seeds. Over 100 young girls were able to participate in these fun, hands on learning experiences, while G.E.M. team members explained the science behind the activities in a fun and interesting way.

During these activities, many of these girls were excited about what they were learning and asked a lot of in-depth questions. It was great to see young girls express their passion for science. The team members at G.E.M. Environmental are proud that we were able to be a part of this amazing event and hope that all the young women continue to pursue their passions, no matter what obstacles they may face.
Our team members Madison, Alex and Kali, along with volunteers Annie and Hannah, were able to reach out to many parents and troop leaders to help spread the word and mission for G.E.M. Environmental. We hope that our programs, scholarship opportunities and special events like this continue to assist students of all ages. G.E.M. FOR STEM!
G.E.M. Environmental had a wonderful time at the Yavapai Big Brother Big Sister 2019 Picnic on Sunday! Kids of all ages enjoyed creating their own slime and building fun geometric shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks. Many of the mentors and older kids enjoyed learning about out scholarship and internship opportunities.
There was something for everyone at the G.E.M. Environmental booth. All visitors were very excited to learn about our STEM opportunities, while getting to participate in a fun, hands on STEM activity. With amazing volunteers, this community outreach event was a complete success. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us!
Join us on September 28th from 3:00PM-6:00PM at the Northern Arizona University Fieldhouse for a fun-filled afternoon exploring Girl Scout activities, which will focus on four program pillars: STEM, the Outdoors, Life Skills, and Entrepreneurship!
Girls will participate in different badge activities, meet amazing community partners and learn all about the opportunities they offer Girl Scouts, Girl Scout Travel, learn all about High Awards, and exchange S.W.A.P.’s with other girls from our council! There will also be activities for adults to learn more about how they can engage and support their G.I.R.L.s in Girl Scouts!
This is a family event! G.E.M. Environmental will be there to hand out scholarship information to the older girls and to do fun activities with the younger girls. One thing we will be doing for sure is letting the girls create their own slime!
We hope to see you there!

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front yard and sidewalk book exchange boxes number nearly 50,000 and can be found in all 50 states and in 70 countries around the world — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. G.E.M. Environmental plans to add multiple libraries around Prescott, AZ.
Through the Little Free Libraries initiative, millions of books are exchanged across the nation each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds. These Little Free Library boxes are available year-round. Community members and passersby are invited to give a book they’ve enjoyed or take a book that sparks their interest.
Our goal is to raise $750 for building supplies. You can make your donation any time between now and August 31st. Just click HERE.
