GEMS is a project initiated by Dr. Sarah Vann. She is the GEMS program coordinator and a memeber of the AAUW American Association of University Women . GEMS stands for "Girls Engaged in Math and Science".
I have been part of GEMS since the year 2000. The GEMS conference is held yearly on the first Saturday of January at Kapiolani Community College. Professional women that work in "male-dominated" fields are speakers. They motivate little girls to follow their dreams by showing them that they can succeed in any discipline that they choose as long as they work hard.
Here are the links to the GEMS presentations that I have given. In Janurary 2002 I was in Mexico, so my colleague Misti Nuha took my place and gave the presentation. For 2003, and on, I was there :-)
