Through GETMagic, I was paired up with a mentor that taught me how to code in HTML, CSS, and Java, which is something that I never would have had the experience to do outside of GETMagic. I really enjoyed being able to visit the Google campus and meeting so many incredible women, from my own mentor to several other ones. Each of them were all very unique and talented individuals that I enjoyed talking to and working with and if I had a chance to do this program again, I absolutely would.

I mentored with MAGIC for the first time this year and had a great experience. The entire MAGIC team and other mentors were very supportive of both the mentees and each other. I was so happy to see MAGIC provide opportunities for young girls to explore stimulating projects in STEM that they themselves were passionate about. I would definitely recommend MAGIC to any middle or high school girls interested in STEM!

I have been volunteering for MAGIC since 2008. Every year I'm still learning something new from my mentees and all the other MAGIC mentors, and it has been really fun!

I got involved in GetMAGIC through introduction from a friend. The objective of helping young women in STEM was very interesting to me. After spending almost 6 months as a mentor, I must say that I am extremely delighted to be involved with GetMAGIC. Mentoring these young minds is a rewarding experience, as you learn so much in the process. This organization is very well run and extremely organized. I highly recommend Getmagic !

I got involved in GetMAGIC through a former colleague at Intel Corporation. The goal of helping young woman interested in STEM was very intriguing to me knowing that the population of women in this area is limited. After spending several months supporting the organization I have to say how excited I am to be involved with GetMAGIC. The mentees are young girls in middle and high school and are simply amazing to watch. One of the mentees from the last session is off to Princeton majoring in Computer Science! Her mentor not only worked on a cool project with her but offered additional advise and coaching as he went off to college. I highly recommend GetMAGIC and look forward to continuing to support the organization in the years to come.

MAGIC is a very well organized effort at bringing the magic of STEM to more and more girls via 1-1 mentoring. I got to be a MAGIC mentor to two awesome girls over the past two years. It's such an incredible feeling to watch your mentees learn, work through challenges, and complete a project in their area of interest.

I am sure that the experience and industry connections that the mentees acquire via MAGIC will be a great asset to them over the years. I also like it that MAGIC provides a platform for mentors like me to network with like-minded professionals.

MAGIC was such an incredible opportunity that allowed girls like me become interested in a STEM field! I was also very lucky to get such amazing mentors like Jen and Uma. They guided me every step of the way from the initial idea to the final product. Having a woman mentor made a huge difference as I could relate and connect even better. In learning their backgrounds and stories, I was inspired that women could work on such amazing projects in their professional career. I went from knowing nothing about coding to building a functioning IOS/Android app. Jen was such a kind and patient mentor who taught me so much and helped troubleshoot and overcome challenges. MAGIC is able to find inspiring women mentors, who volunteer their personal time to help the girls with their projects. I discussed some possible project ideas and very quickly knew what I want to do and then we spent 1 on 1 time over 6 months to bring my app idea to reality. Because of MAGIC, I made new friends, got interested in a STEM career, and developed an app that I plan to continue building. In addition, my little sister (9 years) got interested in coding as well and started Scratch programming all by herself. I want to thank MAGIC and Jen for such a memorable experience.

This was my second time mentoring with MAGIC and it was such a gratifying experience! My mentee, Siya, knew more about HTML, CSS and Javascript than I did, so learning from her and teaching her to organize her brilliant ideas into small chunks of work that she could develop and debug the issues we ran into made for an overall fun experience. The program is very well coordinated and the board supports both the mentors and mentees so they can make the most of the mentoring relationship.

MAGIC was such an amazing experience and opportunity. My mentor, Venmathi, was sweet and patient and guided me throughout the project. I learned Javascript, HTML, CSS, and a little bit of python before applying for MAGIC where I was able to combine everything I learned into one project where I taught math, science, and vocabulary on 3 different levels. Learning with MAGIC made me feel as though I could handle a career in STEM in the future and inspired me to further pursue a career in Computer Science. I remain grateful to everything my mentor taught me and the opportunity MAGIC gave me.

My experience with MAGIC was truly incredible and memorable. My mentor, Hema, was so kind and helpful throughout the entire process. With her guidance, I found the motivation and the passion to pursue a tricky machine learning project. She provided the resources and the support to make my project extremely successful. The one-on-one female mentorship was also something so unique and so valuable, and I definitely could not be where I am today without the help of my mentor and the wonderful opportunities that MAGIC provided.
