Cobb GEMS:
Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science

Summer 2014
"I liked the fact that it's not always men that are into science and have careers in tech. It was cool to see women in the industry. It also made me feel good to
get out and do something productive,
instead of sitting around the house all
day. :) I'm just excited that science isn't as BORING as I made it out to be. :)"
