We’re on a mission to make a difference in addressing girls in STEM and are thrilled to have Science Club for Girls on our inaugural slate. Science Club for Girls has been defining and refining the most impactful ways to address inequities in science education since 1994. Through innovative after-school programs, tailored for developmental effectiveness for underserved K – 12 girls, they change girls’ views about the world around them, who they are as young women and who they can be in the future.
In a nod to Science Club for Girls’ standing as a thought leader tackling the issue of girls in science, Connie Chow, Science Club for Girls’ Executive Director, was recently highlighted in a New York Times article. In The Mystery of the Missing Women in Science, she shares her insights on what keeps girls and women from choosing and staying in the sciences.
Looking for a way to support Science Club for Girls immediately?

SheGives connects committed, inquisitive, engaged funders with a slate of diligenced nonprofits in the Greater Boston area. We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving. Giving is personally driven, but because we give side-by-side our collective impact is greater.
