Western Washington University to Host Girls in Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) Fair on May 30

Western Washington University Youth Programs invite families to join in on a variety of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities at their inaugural Girls in Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) Fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, in the Academic West building on Western’s campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is a great opportunity to learn about careers in STEM while supporting young female learners participating in Western’s Youth Programs this summer.

During the fair, there will be STEM demonstrations every 30 minutes, including a presentation from astronaut Wendy Lawrence, a marine life touch tank, robotics, a science photo booth and more. The GEMS Fair will also feature a silent auction and prize table. All proceeds from the auction will support young women participating in Western Youth Programs this summer.

Due to Western’s Child on Campus Policy, families are asked to pre-register by clicking this link to quicken the check-in process. Parental supervision is required at the fair. Free parking is available in the gravel parking lots in front of Fairhaven College.
