RUSD Middle School Students Attend GEMS Conference to Empower Women

On Wednesday, May 18, female students from all of RUSD’s middle schools attended the 3rd Annual Girls Empowered by Math & Science (GEMS) event at UW-Parkside.

GEMS focused on empowering the area’s young women for a future in math and science by giving them access to materials that could lead them to possible careers and places to focus their education. 

Students participated in hands on demonstrations, heard from guest lecturers and were able to ask questions to women currently working in the medical field, engineering and more.
