"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire."
William Buttler Yeats

The Nevada GEMS Site would like to thank all the educators who have inspired us over the last thirteen years, supporting science and mathematics education and classroom teachers.  With the change in the National Science Standards to the Next Generation Science Standards we have decided to dissolve the organization.  All GEMS resources have been donated to local educational institutions, with the majority going to the Desert Research Institute's "Green Box " program. Educators interested in using GEMS can follow the link below to contact the DRI's Green Box program. It has been our pleasure to serve you

Warmest Regards.
Gail Bushey
Nevada GEMS Site Director
