Local G.E.M.S. Donate to Butler
Thursday, July 30, 2009
The Butler University campus got a little greener July 24 thanks to campers from CAMP G.E.M.S (Girls Energized by Math and Science). The 27 campers, ranging in age from 11-14 years old, presented Center for Urban Ecology Program Manager Marjorie Hennessy with a hand painted flower box to go near the main entrance to Gallahue Hall. Butler was among 16 area non-profits to receive flower boxes handmade by the girls.
Flower boxes were the gift of choice as they fulfilled several goals of the camp, explained Girls Inc. Community Service Specialist Vicki Rubio. “First, it unified the camp under the theme of construction and philanthropy. Also, it fit into the strength of empowering girls through math and science. Finally, it taught the girls a valuable lesson about being a philanthropist.”
Ran by a partnership between Girls Inc. of Indianapolis and the Life Science Education Center at Marian University, Camp G.E.M.S. is an all girls’ two-week summer camp dedicated to math and science.
