Since its founding in 1994, Science Club for Girls (SCFG) has strived to provide the very best in girls-specific programming, by connecting girls in K-12 grades, especially those from underrepresented groups, with female mentor-scientists through free science and engineering programs in a fun, nurturing, interactive environment. Our leadership program for teenage girls gives them the opportunity to be role models, teach young children science, learn life skills, conduct outreach, and explore careers in science and technology. More than 1,000 girls participate annually in SCFG programs that take place in five cities in eastern Massachusetts (Cambridge, Lawrence, Boston, Newton and Fitchburg), as well as in Pokuase, Ghana.
