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!
