Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a mentee in the MAGIC kickoff in the 2008-2009 school year. My mentor was Rosemary Emery-Montemerlo. We met once a week for about seven months. I had a blast in my one-on-one mentoring experience. My mentor and I looked at object oriented programs (Scratch and Alice) and coding in a computer language (Python). Not only did we learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) topics, but we also shared stories of our lives and family. I built a bond with my mentor that will never be forgotten. Being a part of Magic has been a great experience for me, and I am pleased to say that I keep in touch with my mentor to this day!
