Celebrating 29 Years

Founded in 1994, Science Club for Girls is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that addresses inequities in STEM around race, gender, and socioeconomics. With women making up less than 29% of the STEM workforce — and Black and Latina women at less than 4% — Science Club for Girls addresses a critical need, offering a continuum of engaging STEM activities for K-12 girls and gender-expansive youth, including junior mentoring and leadership experiences for high school participants, and adult mentoring and role modeling by volunteers studying STEM disciplines in higher education and working in STEM careers.

Science Club for Girls' mission is to foster excitement, confidence, and literacy in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for girls and gender-expansive youth from underrepresented communities by providing free, experiential programs and by maximizing meaningful interactions with women-in-STEM mentors.

Key Facts

  • All program are free — removing a barrier to access.

  • SCFG focuses on girls and gender-expansive youth from groups underrepresented in STEM by income, race and/or first generation college-bound.

  • More than 83% of participants and over 60% of mentors are from backgrounds underrepresented in STEM.

  • Over the last thirteen years, >90% of our high school juniors and seniors have gone on to college (up 20% over the national average) and of those girls, >55% of them choose to major in STEM.

  • SCFG participants stay interested in science through high school, select more challenging math and science courses and are aware of STEM career possibilities because of SCFG.

STEM needs to be where kids are — schools, community centers, and at home, after-school and on weekends —  and introduced at a young age when they are most curious.
