Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I mentored an amazing 8th grade student from January to May. Magic is such a well-organized group, which provides significant assistance to mentors via monthly meetings and a supportive network of mentors. My mentee and I were both interested in biology and genetics, so we chose projects in those fields. We decided on a set of projects that aligned with my mentees other interests too, focusing on the theme of super bugs. After some background research, my mentee drove the project by designing a grade level experiment to see how many people could be infected by an imaginary bacteria AND filmed and produced a public service announcement on the topic. Great experience!
