GiST (Girls in STEM* at Tulane)

Mission Statement

Tulane SSE GIST OutreachTulane 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

Do you love Art & Science? Come to GiST Get Out!

Do you love art and science? Are you curious to see how they can come together? Are you a girl in 4th or 5th grade? Join us for a day of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities at Tulane's a Studio in the Woods, our art and science collaborative space located on the West Bank! Get out into Louisiana's beautiful bottomland hardwood forests and discover the secrets of this amazing ecosystem!

Our Mission: Tulane University's GiST Get Out Program provides fourth and fifth grade girls with the opportunity to meet and work with women role models in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) fields. GiST Get Out aims to use art as a method of communication to teach girls about what is going on in the world around them and how scientists make discoveries. Through exploration and implementation for the scientific method with an artistic twist, the girls who participate will learn to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively.

The Spring 2017 topic will be focusing on topics that define Louisiana's wetlands, such as food webs, disaster resilience, and conservation.

When: Saturday April 8th, 2017 8:30am - 3:00pm - Applications are now closed.
