Science Club for Girls

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 11, 2013, 9:19 PM

Description

Now in its eighteenth year, Science Club for Girls (SCFG) has established an excellent reputation as a nonprofit organization with expertise in girls-specific programming in underserved communities. SCFG was recognized by Root Cause as the 2012 Social Innovator in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics enrichment and education. It was one of six national MetLife AfterSchool Innovator Awards in Fall 2010 for the design and impact of the middle school Science Clubs and CELLS program.

Currently, SCFG provides free, hands-on science and engineering programs to over 1,000 girls in five cities in eastern Massachusetts (Cambridge, Lawrence, Boston, Newton and Fitchburg), and in Pokuase, Ghana.

Our mission is to increase the self-confidence and literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) of K-12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in these fields, through free programs that include 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.
