About
The Girls Advancing In STEM (GAINS) Initiative supports high school girls’ interest in STEM topics. Through the GAINS Network, GAINS club structure and GAINS conference, we help high school girls connect with peers interested in STEM, explore STEM career options and interact with STEM role models. The GAINS Network is a school-based virtual community for high school girls interested in STEM topics. It is a place where girls interested in STEM can connect with each other and with women working and studying in these fields. Through the GAINS club structure high school girls take the lead on their campuses. With guidance provided by our monthly calendar and the resources found in our online community they explore STEM fields and connect with local women working in STEM. Please contact us at: gains@greenwichacademy.org

Many of our member schools use the GAINS network resources and schedule of events to support their work on campus. Schools host student-led GAINS groups/clubs that meet regularly to explore STEM topics and careers. 

Joining is easy and free!  Schools register to join the network and sign a membership agreement. 

Students (and/or teachers) organize a group of high school girls who are interested in STEM and form a GAINS club/group.
