Girls Excel in Math (GEM) Calgary

Girls Excel in Math (GEM) Calgary is a Saturday enrichment program for grades 6 - 8 students who identify as girls. Students will have fun exploring mathematical topics that they would not normally see in the classroom. 

Students will begin in a large lecture hall with a session led by Lauren DeDieu. They will then split into a smaller classroom with other students from their school. This smaller session will be led by a teacher from their school, with support from undergraduate/graduate student volunteers.
