Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've have 4 mentees through getMagic, but this year was my first high schooler, and I loved it! It's always fun to code with the kids, but my high schooler was also in the time in her life when she was thinking about colleges, majors, and careers. Those conversations - what she's thinking about, and what advice and experience I could offer, have been the coolest part of the experience for me!

Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved mentoring with GetMagic! I was matched with an excited middle schooler, and we really clicked, which made it easy to help her with her project. I was impressed at how outgoing and creative my mentee was, and she was willing to try anything. She clearly hadn't yet hit the point where she was self conscious about herself or her abilities, and I am optimistic that she will at least consider a career in a STEM field when the time is right. I believe that this program is an excellent way to expose girls to STEM fields in a personalized and interactive way. As they complete their projects, they get to know a woman who made a career out of the subjects they are studying, which seems to be extra encouraging. I think this is an excellent opportunity for girls, and it's an experience I wish I had as a middle/high schooler. I can't wait to mentor with GetMagic again!
