GEMS Night Out (Girls in Engineering, Math & Science) Bellingham

Registration ends the Sunday before the program starts.

Women in the fields of engineering, math and science are still severely underrepresented. Help us fix that inequity. It all starts with getting more girls interested in engineering, math and science!

Join us and a whole community of GEMS for an empowering evening on Western’s campus to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) topics.

Girls in grades 3-8 explore hands-on science activities in Western’s SMATE (Science, Math and Technology Education) building.

Youth program participants and staff must abide by all University regulations and program rules.

Financial assistance is available for this program! Apply for financial assistance via the Western Youth Program Financial Assistance application before registering.
