Girls in STEM at Tulane (GiST)


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 faculty and 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. More information is on our website.

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. If you are interested in applying to be a group leader or help with a workshop, please check out our Leadership Application Form.
