For most people, drones don’t have great connotations. We associate them with bombs being dropped in foreign countries, or with sinister domestic surveillance programs. But a couple in Owings Mills has been putting small, unmanned aircraft to a different use — they’re using them to create art.

Joo Eun Lee’s experience as an international boarder from Korea sparked her love of leadership. In 8th grade, she was elected boarding president, and the list grew from there: Forum, residential life student leader, 11th grade boarding president and vice president of the school. She honed her self-confidence in the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) GFS/Johns Hopkins program and as a Jenkins Fellow. “At GFS, I found the courage to become the driver of my life, not a person who takes the backseat,” says Joo Eun ‘13, who is sharing her passion for leading at Smith College.

Now, as Middle School honor board chair, she is making the community she loves even better. A veteran of student government, she’s learning that she can effect change. And as a three-season athlete, she’s discovering that the respect and encouragement on the court make all the difference off.

121-05.29.13 GFS Portraits_Bill McAllenYiliu Zhang ’14 can barely contain her enthusiasm for new experiences. A self-described “shy girl” before joining GFS as an international boarder, now she’s the first to voice her opinion in class and try something new. A Cum Laude member, she shares her passion for math by tutoring Middle School students. As a dorm leader, she loves to gather friends together. When she tried out for Varsity Golf, the team welcomed her, something she is doing as part of the orientation team: “I am becoming a stronger person at GFS because it’s an all-girls’ school. It’s so open and encouraging.”

Garrison Forest School- Educating Thinkers for the Future

0 Written by: | Friday, Oct 25, 2013 2:30pm


Lauren Gillis, GFS WISE student, at work in an engineering lab at Johns Hopkins University.

It’s 2013, and everyone still wants to know why there are so few women in science. With women making huge strides in workplace equality in other fields, science and engineering still remain largely boys’ clubs. Earlier this month, the New York Times reported on a study done at Yale showing that science professors, when presented with job applications from two young scientists with the same qualifications (one male, the other female), they were significantly more likely to offer the man a job. And if they did hire the woman, her salary would, on average, start about $4,000 lower than the man’s. Oof. Disappointing. But surprising? Maybe not.

We know that girls are rarely encouraged to pursue math and science—and those that do may lose their natural inclination toward the field when they face the reality of how tough it can be for women in the professional realm. But now imagine a place where young women are actively encouraged to pursue their interest in these fields. And it’s not just in the classroom. Here, upper school students get in-depth, immersive (read: really exciting) mentorships that take them into actual research laboratories. At John Hopkins. Of course, this place does exist, and it’s at Garrison Forest School– which is continuing to grow their fabulous WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) program.

The WISE program at Garrison Forest has been in existence for nine years now. And by the end of this year, almost a third of Garrison Forest students now participate by the time they graduate. In fact, the mentorship program is so popular  that the school has introduced a new WISE program in Classics, with two students working on an epigraphy project last spring,  at the JHU Archaeological Museum. They spent a semester studying a Roman funerary, and culminated their research by presenting their findings at two public gatherings at the museum — including an academic symposium at which they were the only high school presenters.
