The Learning Continues: SCFG at Home
With critical measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including school and university closures, Science Club for Girls has moved our operations online for the remainder of the spring semester.

We are incredibly grateful to all of our mentors, junior mentors, partnering schools and sites, and to the girls and families who participate in our clubs. While we'll miss seeing you in person each week, we're looking forward to connecting with you virtually and can't wait to resume clubs in the fall!

SCFG at Home!

In the meantime, we're encouraging all our club participants to continue exploring Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at home. We've compiled a list of hands-on activities, videos, podcasts, and virtual tours for our community to enjoy. Every Monday, we will highlight one activity from the list and share photos and videos from our SCFG community on our Facebook Page as the "STEM activity of the week" for all of us to do together.

We welcome anyone—not just our club participants!—to try out an experiment and post on social media with the hashtag #SCFGatHome . You can also email a photo or video of your activity to [email protected] for us to share. Click below for the list of resources, and check out this week's activity here . We look forward to seeing how you #SCFGatHome!
Keeping our Community Connected

In an effort to stay connected, our Mentors and Junior Mentors will be interacting with their Science Club participants (and each other!) by writing letters, recording videos, and/or hosting Zoom gatherings and seminars. Stay tuned for more updates on how the Science Club for Girls community is connecting, inspiring, and supporting each other as we navigate these challenging times.

Of course, all tickets and sponsorships will be honored for the rescheduled event. We can't wait to celebrate with you at a future date. Please stay tuned!

Reflection from Graduating Junior Mentor Crystal Chau

We're so proud of Junior Mentor Crystal Chau for her 8 (almost 9!) years with Science Club for Girls. Four years ago, Crystal became a Junior Mentor to " give back to the organization that not only taught me, but raised me." Thank you, Crystal, for all you have done for SCFG, as a leader and a role model. Crystal shares:

" Today the realization hit. Last week concluded my time as a Junior Mentor at Science Club for Girls. From my freshman year to senior year of high school, I was immersed in an experience where I got to learn so much not only about teaching, but my joy for children. I learned so much about communication and what it means to be a leader. I got to explore so many of my own unique interests that I want to pursue in the future."

Congratulations to Crystal—and to all graduating Junior Mentors—on your many accomplishments at SCFG! We know your futures are bright and can't wait to welcome you back as Mentors. Science Club will not be the same without you!

Summer Rocketry Camp Preparing for Lift Off

This summer, we're partnering with Aurora Flight Sciences to offer a two-week Rocket Camp for middle school girls. Participants will learn to design, build, and launch rockets—gaining knowledge of the Engineering Design Process in a safe and inspiring space. The camp will be open to rising 6th - 9th graders and take place in Cambridge in early July. Stay tuned for more information!
About Science Club for Girls
SCFG fosters excitement, confidence and literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for girls from underrepresented communities by providing free, experiential programs. With women making up less than 24 percent of the STEM workforce—and black and Hispanic women at less than four percent—SCFG addresses a critical need, offering a continuum of engaging activities in STEM for K-8 girls, leadership experiences for high school girls, and adult mentoring by committed women in STEM.
