The SCFG is made truly wonderful by its staff. I am always eager to attend their events and see for myself the difference they make in the lives of each individual/student they touch

The Great!

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

attending their Show Me the Science! Events and attending other events with my organization that they also partake in.

Science Club for Girls volunteers have been coming into my classroom once a week for the last three years. During these visits, the volunteers have taught lessons, led activities, conducted experiments, and engaged in rich and lively discussions with my students. The volunteers are consistently engaged and reliable--they always come to the classroom well-prepared for the day's activities. Additionally, some of our volunteers even went so far as to create supplemental materials for various activities.

The Great!

Based on my own observations as well as student surveys, I would attest that participating in SCFG positively affected my students' attitudes toward science and strengthened their understanding of scientific processes and terms.

SCFG is an exceptional program connecting high level science professionals with young girls to help girls feel successful within the field of science. SCFG attracts many volunteers who have PhDs and other advanced degrees. The volunteers are committed to the mission of SCFG and willing to dedicate time and effort on a weekly basis. The bar is set high for what children can achieve and the children rise to the occasion. The clubs also enable children to engage in a hands-on, experimental learning model that is fun, exciting, and helps children learn. This program is an exceptional experience for all involved.

The Great!

I have witnessed the children enrolled in the program and seen their excitement about the field of science. I have also collaborated with public school teaching professionals who view SCFG as a valuable experience and opportunity for their students.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with advance science professionals (with degrees such as PhDs) who are committed to working with children and giving back to the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to issues related to women's rights and social justice.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a significant dent in the gender bias that boys are better than girls in science. It could extend its program to more schools, children and perhaps even explore ways to become a national model.

A great opportunity to get scientists to give back to the community. It raises awareness in among scientists of the challenges and rewards of bringing science to the public. This program should be a requirement for all young scientists interested in teaching one day.

The Great!

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

adding to my experience as a confident and competent teacher.

My first impression of SCFG was one of awe and excitement. I had been asked to serve on a panel of corporate grantmakers with expertise in science education, which was followed by an afternoon of experiments led by the older girls for the younger girls who were enrolled in the Clubs. What impressed me most was how poised and confident the older girls were in teaching the younger girls, and in modeling behavior of learning, knowledge-sharing, and mentoring. That was in 1999. What continues to impress me is what these young girls and women are continuing to do as they successful apply, get accepted, and win scholarships to college. These are young women who never dreamed of going to college, and most of whom are the first from their families to aspire to do so. The impact is nothing short of inspirational, as other communities ask to start their own clubs, and as SCFG alumnae take initiative to start clubs in the communities where they are attending college. I am humbled by the amazing dedication of the Clubs' founders, board leaders, and incredibly talented staff. It is a program I wished I could have had as a young woman, and am thrilled to be engaged with now!

The Great!

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

...watching and learning these young girls and women speak confidently about their challenges and how they developed solutions. Their interest in science, engineering and technology--fields that traditionally have low female participation--is contagious!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...being inspired by the girls themselves, but also meeting other women (and men!)--leaders from business and community who are engaged with the Clubs through their children who are participants, through their companies, or other reasons.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...dedicated, talented, intelligent, and very passionate about advancing the understanding of science, math, engineering and technology for girls and young women.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...build a FREE nation-wide network of SCFG with international "sister" affiliates; offer scholarships for this underserved, at-risk population to attend college; facilitate corporate and community mentoring programs with the girls; etc.!
