GMS Summer Experience

The GMS Summer Experience offers a supportive learning community that allows a girl to discover her strengths and express her voice through a variety of interdisciplinary activities that include engineering, design, performance art, tinkering, making, and scientific inquiry. To ensure that the girls are fully immersed in the GMS experience, the summer program is created and taught by GMS faculty.

Age Range: Rising fifth to eighth grade girls
Location: The Girls’ Middle School campus, 3400 West Bayshore Rd, Palo Alto

There are two sessions offered. A girl can choose Session I, Session II, or both.

Session I: Performing Arts and Design (FULL)
June 19th - June 30th
Girls will take ownership of putting on a full musical production. Over the course of the two weeks they will have opportunities to design, create, build, and act by taking on the responsibility of set design and construction, choreography, stage management, performance, and costume design. Families are invited to attend the performance on June 30th at 5:30 pm.

Session II: STE(A)M & Makers
July 10th - July 21st
Girls can draw on their critical thinking and problem solving skills to complete projects that are rooted in practical, hands-on exploration. Through collaboration and inquiry, girls will engage in the iterative process to explore metalsmithing, woodworking, engineering, science, mathematics, and the arts. Our capstone project will be centered around designing and building single-person boats and devices that the girls will test on an all-day field trip to the beach.
