Girls Excel in Math (GEM) Calgary

Girls Excel in Math (GEM) Calgary is a Saturday enrichment program for Grades 6 - 8 girls who are interested in having fun exploring mathematical topics that they would not normally see in the classroom. Topics include voting methods, cryptology, fractals and graph colouring.

Students will be in a classroom with other students from their school and the session will be led by a teacher from their school, with support from undergraduate student volunteers.
