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.
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.
