GiST (Girls in STEM* at Tulane)
Tulane University’s GiST Program provides fifth through seventh grade girls with the opportunity to meet and work with women role models in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Workshops developed and offered by Tulane faculty and Tulane student teams encourage and empower girls to inquire, investigate, and discover in a positive environment. Our goal is to open the doors wide and welcome young students to careers in STEM fields by encouraging creative thinking, promoting self-esteem, and increasing awareness of the opportunities that await them.
*STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math
