Science Club for Girls

Since its founding in 1994, Science Club for Girls (SCFG) has provided the very best in girls-specific programming by connecting girls in K-12 grades, especially those from underrepresented groups, with female mentor-scientists through free science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs in a fun, nurturing, interactive environment. Its club-based model fosters both scientific thinking and sisterhood for our youngest participants.  Its teen leadership programs give girls the opportunity to be role models, teach young children science, learn life skills, conduct science research in applied settings, and explore careers in science and technology. With fully 80% of the fastest growing jobs in the next decade requiring capabilities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the Science Club for Girls' efforts to increase interest and promote career awareness in these fields are essential to ensure the economic security for underrepresented groups and their communities.
