History of G.E.M.S.


In Spring 2006 AAUW College Park and the diversity initiative Science and Technology: Addressing the Need for Diversity (STAND) at the University of Maryland-College Park introduced G.E.M.S. as a monthly activity at Hyattsville Middle School.  Nine students enrolled in G.E.M.S.  Now going into its ninth year, G.E.M.S. is a weekly, after-school enrichment class in three Prince George’s middle schools. Fifteen to twenty university students mentor and tutor more than 45 middle school girls.  With the support of University of Maryland College Park Scholars programs, members of the community and Prince George’s County Council, we are able to offer girls in middle school a program with incentives and opportunities to excel in math and science.
