Volunteers working with the Science Club for Girls (SCFG) at the Curley School hope that the next generation of scientists and engineers will include a lot more women.
SCFG is a nonprofit collection of educational programs for girls that encourages them in the fields of science and engineering and can include topics as diverse as the oceans, cancer and rocket science. Women teach all the classes. The Curley hosts one of SCFG’s programs.
“We send a message that science, engineering, technology and mathematics are not just for geniuses, only for girls who are ‘A’ students, or only for those who can afford to go to paid programs,” SCFG Executive Director Connie Chow said.
