We will be having another GiST event on March 30th, 2019 so check again for that registration in January 2019!


The Tulane faculty in the School of Science and Engineering host an outreach program called GiST for 5th to 7th 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 November 3rd, 2018.

The event will begin at 8:00am 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 3:00pm.

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 and engineering.

Are you in 8th-12th grade? Be a GiST LEADER!

Have you ever had a great time at GiST? Would you like to come help us out with the next one? If you are in 8th-12th grade, like STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and would like to get more involved with GiST, we'd love to have you apply for our leaders program! You could be an assistant group leader or work with our professors and students in running one of your favorite workshops. You must be available from 9:00am-3:00pm on November 3rd.
