Magic has been a wonderful partnership for our school, not only for encouraging students to take on a self directed deep dive into computer science but for also demonstrating the power of mentorship. It was rewarding to see quiet students be able to present their final projects with such confidence and poise and demonstrate all that they learned throughout the project. The overall organization of the program was very accessible and well organized from the application process to check-in and also final presentations. I look forward to continuing to work with them and be able to inspire many more students.

The MAGIC program really helped my daughter further her knowledge in the STEM field. Working with a mentor really helped her understanding and growth in engeneering and programming.

Great job MAGIC!

Participating in the MAGIC program helped me to further my interest in computer science and make having a job in a STEM field a likely option for me in the future. My mentor was patient with me when I had trouble understanding the concepts that she was trying to teach me and provided detailed and helpful answers to my questions. I got to learn more about Python, HTML, and CSS, and I also got to try Javascript. Doing MAGIC was honestly one of the greatest, most rewarding things I've done, and I looking forward to learning more about computer science in the future.

MAGIC provided me with an amazing learning experience. Not only was I able to explore 3-D modeling, a subject I have always been interested in, I was paired up with an understanding and resourceful mentor who helped me with my project and even took me on a tour of her office, so I could learn about the real-life applications of what I was learning about. Overall, I really loved my MAGIC experience, and if I could, I would definitely do it again!

MAGIC was a really interesting program that helped me learn more about a topic I'm interested in, artificial intelligence. I created a chatbot! I don't think I would've been able to do it without the help of my fantastic mentor.

I did this for school and it will stay with me for ever. I really enjoyed the one on one experience with my mentor and being able choose what to do in any STEM field I wanted. I learned a lot of important skills in programming.

My mentor was really nice and supportive. She was very helpful and knew what she was doing. She was also very friendly and fun to work with.

If I could change something about this program it would be to make the mentorship longer. I did this for one year and I would totally continue doing it for longer if I had the chance.

MAGIC has offered my daughter a wonderful experience this year. She's worked over Skype with a mentor in New Orleans to build a chatbot in CoffeeScript, an ambitious but achievable project through which she learned a great deal. Her mentor was excellent and offered my daughter the chance to collaborate with a woman already making her way with success in the world of technology - a precious thing in a field that too many young women still feel unwelcome from joining.

Thanks so much for all your efforts to engage more girls in STEM! It is admirable what your organization is able to do for the girls and how valuable it is for their future! We are so grateful!

My middle school daughter had a fantastic time learning and was able to go deep into the topic of superconductivity with her mentor and learn more than she expected! Especially for introverted girls having the one on one mentoring really makes a difference! She was able to ask all her questions and have very good discussions with her mentor on all types of science. It was a real gift and she was lucky to have this opportunity!

Since I have been involved with the Getmagic program, I have understood and implemented the fundamentals of python, engineered with Raspberry Pi and learned about topics such as the Internet of Things. Additionally, I have become more passionate about advocating girls in STEAM. I thank Magic and my mentor for helping me further my learning about technology and reminding me that it is our future.

Through MAGIC , I was able to deepen my knowledge of computer science, specifically website design, and gain confidence in pursuing a career related to computer programming. My mentor Catherine Wah was extremely helpful and made the mentorship a great experience.
