  • Description: Science Club for Girls is a program that brings women scientists and girls together in free after-school science clubs that focus on scientific and technical skills and education. The clubs give young girls an opportunity to get involved in science and engineering activities in a fun, nurturing, interactive environment, an opportunity they might not otherwise receive. SCFG's 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. The Boston College Chapter of SCFG brings together women undergraduates and young, aspiring female scientists at the Edison school and fosters the mission of SCFG on campus through various events.
