The Gateway to Exploring Mathematical Sciences program (GEMS) is a monthly, Saturday morning workshop designed to get young students excited about math and science. GEMS is designed to reach eighth-, ninth- and 10th-grade students from the surrounding areas who may have an interest in mathematics or science. The workshops present mathematics and science applications in an exciting way that catches young students’ interest. Professors, undergraduates and graduate students from The Claremont Colleges take part in the GEMS program, thus offering incoming students, their parents and teachers a chance to meet and work with excellent and award-winning faculty, staff, students and alumni. The GEMS program helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students and shows them how amazing and satisfying the mathematical sciences can be.


Participation is limited to 40 at each workshop. Registration is open and free of charge to all students in the eighth through 10th grades. Because each session is independent from the other sessions, a student may choose to participate in one workshop, or all of the workshops. However once a student has experienced one session, they will likely want to attend more!
