The Science Club for Girls’ Media Team is the most exciting after school activity for girls 8th-12th grade. Everything we do is very cool; from ice breakers, meeting and interviewing new interesting people, working with new technology-like I am now, the new windows surface- going to interesting places to learn more about how people do their jobs and to do the things you like, making new friends and finally going on field trips! ~Victoria Fischer
MadSciMag: Where teens drop mad science!
MadSciMag is the creation of the Science Club for Girls’ Media Team. Our Media Team consists of 8th-12th grade girls in the Cambridge and Boston area that love to tell the stories of science. Over the course of the year, our budding journalists will learn how to write news stories for the web, create podcasts, photo slide shows, and broadcast packages. They will pitch stories, and choose an area of science to dive in and ask essential questions to learn directly from professionals in the field. With field trips to newsrooms and television studios, and workshops from freelance journalists, and contributors to publications such as The Washington Post, National Geographic, New Scientist, and The Atlantic, the girls will make connections, ask questions, and share their stories with the community!
Science Club for Girls’ mission is to increase the self-confidence and literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) of K-12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in these fields, through free programs that include hands-on learning, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. SCFG serves approximately 900 children annually through school year programs in Cambridge, Newton, Boston, Lawrence, and Fitchburg.
