G.E.M.S (Glasgow in Engineering, Math and Science)
Hey Glasgow! Are you interested in STEM? Do you want to work with TJ students to do fun experiments and lessons? Come to GEMS on Wednesdays during the academic block to learn more about STEM-related topics. Some of our past lessons include airbags, density, as well as math games. We also offer homework help in all school subjects. Feel free to stop by and get help in math, science, English, and another language (if we have a tutor available).
Students are put together into a controlled study hall group where they can receive homework help, project assistance, and further academic support.
Science Olympiad is a very fun school based organization where schools from all across the United States learn STEM-based subjects, compete and have fun. There are 22 events, with 3 event types: study events, where you have to learn about a topic such as the weather or electricity; lab events, where you have to use different properties of chemicals in a lab setting; and build events, where you build something like a car before the event and run it at the event. Each school gets 2 teams of 15 people, so if enough people are interested, everyone can do 3-4 events with partners. Glasgow hopes to compete in the competitions this year!
Digital Art Club
This club is for beginners to experienced digital artist. Club members with be exposed and learn about various digital art platforms, share their illustrations and creations digitally, and hear from experts in the field.

Once a month (4th Wednesday) from 2:30 to 4:00 pm from January to April, and the first program will be taking place after school Wednesday, January 26th.
Purpose of Program: I want to help prepare Glasgow students to consider TJ and other STEM interests. Each session I plan to bring a group from TJ of specialized students from different clubs to present different subjects. For example, some of the topics I am considering covering include space, physics, computer science, advanced mathematics, prototyping, and many others.
Desired Outcome: My hope for this program is that more students from Glasgow will be interested in pursuing STEM and as an overall bonus -- TJ H.S.
