Girls at Fox Mill Elementary are pursuing their interest in math and science by joining the school’s Girls Excelling in Math and Science program (GEMS), which meets after school. Over the course of the year, the girls will investigate, explore and be exposed to a variety of topics and professionals in related fields. Recently, WUSA9 meteorologist Erica Grow met with the girls to discuss different types of weather, and facilitated a hands-on activity for the students. The group has heard from a female pilot and has an upcoming meeting scheduled with a scientist from George Mason University. In May, Fox Mill’s GEMS members will visit a cooking school to learn how chemistry and cooking are related.
