GIST Events


Saturday, February 28, 2015 - Registration will open in early January.

8:30am - 3:00pm
Hosted by Tulane Faculty & Students

Participants will visit three different labs where they will do workshops in STEM fields. Lunch, snacks, and a t-shirt will be provided.

Cost $10. Please do not mail checks until formally accepted.

We will be having another GIST event in Fall 2015 so check again around the start of the school year!

The Tulane faculty in the School of Science and Engineering host an outreach program called GIST for 5th to 8th grade girls to have positive experiences with women role models in STEM fields. We are organizing a Saturday event hosted by Tulane faculty and students on February 28, 2015 and another one in Fall 2015.  We only have 25 spots available per grade level for each event.

The event will begin at 8:30am with a sign-in and fun science activities led by Tulane undergrads. Participants will then get together in small groups and visit three different labs where they will do workshops in STEM fields led by Tulane faculty, post-docs and graduate students. We will provide lunch, snacks, and a t-shirt. The day will wrap up by 3pm.

We will soon be posting more information about the titles and topics of the workshops, but all of them are guaranteed to be great opportunities to work with women and girls in science.
