GEM (2020-2022) is a European Union co-funded pilot project, aiming to encourage girls’ interest in STEM and ICT subjects and inspire them to choose careers and become entrepreneurs in these fields. To achieve this goal, the project consortium will organize exciting cost-free summer camps for girls aged 12-18 and establish a wide reaching network of schools, higher education institutions, companies and policy makers, thus supporting girls in pursuing these careers.
AN UPDATE DUE TO CORONA VIRUS. The spread of COVID-19 has left an imprint on the professional as well as everyday life around the world. Along with that, also GEM Project realisation has not been left uneffected. Through several restrictions in the consortium countries, such as closed schools, limited accsesss to univiersities or any other public places, as well as travel restrictions hinders the project from achieving it’s aims this summer: reach girls to excite them about STEM, information and communication technology subjects by organizing summer camps and building a Europe-wide network that would support girls in pursuing these careers.
To implement the project to its full potential and no risk of getting infected with the virus, we have decided to postpone the first round of summer camps until summer 2021, followed by a second round of camps in 2022. We are very excited to present you in near future descriptions of each of the summer camps taking place next year as part of this essentially important project.
