I have been associated with MAGIC as a volunteer for a year now. I mentored a middle-school girl for the academic year 2009-2010 and did several computer-science projects with her. I thoroughly enjoyed my relationship with the mentee and how we turned her ideas into interesting projects. The mentoring process was made very natural and simple because of the constant support from the core team and all other mentors. To me, MAGIC is not just an opportunity to help a young STEM enthusiast, but also a conducive environment to grow as a mentor and as a scientist.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

increase in mentee's knowledge, and clarity in vision/future plans related to STEM and computer science field.

I started with MAGIC as a volunteer in Nov, 2009 and have been a mentor to a high school girl for the past 5 months. I highly value the 1 on 1 interaction as I think this format provides the greatest impact on the girls. The core management does a great job providing support for each mentor-mentee relationship - while we enjoy almost total freedom in mentoring topics, we must follow certain guidelines to ensure that the girls get a full experience out of each 6-9 month mentorship.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

- Mentee's interest in STEM related fields visibly increased over the course of mentorship. - My personal interest in the future of women in STEM has increased.

I have been working with MAGIC for two years. Each years I mentored a middle school girl at GMS in Mountain View. In the weekly meetings, we read some STEM related articles online, programmed together using tools like Scratch, played puzzles together. Overall I can see the girls improving their logic thinking skills, and the experience is very rewarding to me as well. MAGIC provides the opportunity to work closely with schools and attract young minds that are interested in learning more about STEM. I strongly support MAGIC and will continue to contribute as a mentor in the program.

Meeting with younger girls is very a rewarding experience for me as well, because they are very enthusiastic about new and fun things. I believe the mentoring experience is good for both the mentors and mentees.
