Georgian Court University Hosts Science, Math Programs for Girls

GCU and corporate partners cultivate next generation of STEM fans

Give a girl and problem and she’s likely to solve it—especially if she happens to be one of several participants in Georgian Court University’s recent STEM programs for young women in middle and high school. The university just wrapped its 2014 GIST (Girls Involved in Science and Technology) program, which drew about 32 students in 6th-12th grades for a week of chemistry, math, aeronautics, forensics, and more. 

“This is all about making learning fun,” said Dr. Sarita Nemani, a mathematician and chair of Georgian Court’s department of mathematics. “Even when students are working with sticks to evaluate triangles, they don’t realize they are really re-thinking everything they already know about geometry. The same goes for participants taking a hike across campus; they’re learning about the heart and about biology.”
