The Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council invite you to attend the annual Girls Exploring Math and Science (GEMS) event generously supported by BMC Software, CenterPoint Energy & Phillips 66. The Houston Museum of Natural Science will be filled with hands-on science and math for everyone to experience. Local professionals will be at the Museum to answer questions about their careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Join us on Saturday, February 15, 2020 from 9am to 1pm to see STEM in action! The GEMS event is included with admission to HMNS permanent exhibit halls.
