Science Club for Girls
The mission of Science Club for Girls (SCFG) is to increase the confidence and literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) of girls in K-12th grades through hands-on learning, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Girls work with mentor-scientists who model and foster leadership, affirm college as an expectation, and promote careers in science and technology as goals and options. SCFG’s enrollment has grown steadily from the initial sixteen K-1st grade girls in one school in Cambridge to 1,000 children at 15 sites in 5 cities in eastern Massachusetts. Science Club for Girls galvanizes college and graduate women as well as professionals in science, technology and engineering to serve as facilitators to provide hands-on for girls as young as kindergarten, all, the way to 12th grade.
