The Girls Electronic Music Stars (GEMS) summer program is designed to educate and empower the new generation in an inclusive environment that breaks down barriers that have historically led to the underrepresentation of women and minorities in technology and engineering. GEMS is designed for students 10-12 years old. This program explores some of the amazing opportunities for expression, learning and fun that are available in music and technology. The focus will be on electronic music, studio recording and performance, collaborative circuit making, interactive programming, and improvising/playing music with technology. This is a 2-week seminar that runs 9am to 3pm. All activities are planned at the NYU Music Technology facilities and studios, supplemented by local field trips.
