Science Club for Girls is a MA-based nonprofit that provides free, after school and Saturday programs so young girls (K-7th) can experience for themselves how fun science and engineering can be, by introducing them to hands-on explorations through our semester-long science clubs, week-long vacation week science explorations, and half-day community science fairs.
Adolescent girls (8-12th grades) learn by doing by serving as Junior Mentors in the clubs, and develop their own building blocks for the future through our CELLS (career exploration, leadership, life skills) program.
Our goal is to build confidence in girls around science and engineering, see how these fields relate to real life, and to inspire them to become future scientists. Over 100 professionals, grad students and undergraduate students in science and engineering serve as volunteers and role models to make these programs possible. Last year, we served more than 800 girls (and some boys) through our various programs!
Please see our website at www.scienceclubforgirls.org for details. We are grant funded and always welcome donations of time, talent and treasure!
