The Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMSĀ®) Program is a leading resource for innovative science and mathematics education. Developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science, the public science education center at the University of California at Berkeley, and tested in thousands of classrooms nationwide, over 80 GEMS Teacher's Guides and Handbooks offer a wide range of supplementary learning experiences for preschool through eighth grade.

GEMS activities engage students in direct experience and experimentation to introduce essential, standards-based principles and concepts. Clear step-by-step instructions enable all teachers to be successful presenting the activities. GEMS units offer effective, practical, economical, and schedule-friendly ways to provide high-quality science and math learning to all students.

The GEMS site at Keene State promotes math and science education through math and science methods classes, Kids on Campus, Teachers on Campus, non-credit classes, professional development workshops offered through school systems, the Science Out of the Box after school program, and home schooling collaboratives.
