SheShinesOn…Lydia Peabody, Science Club for Girls


K-5 Program Director

Oversees all of SCFG’s kindergarten through 5th grade programs

Grew up in Minnesota

Q: Could you tell us a little more about your professional experience?

A: Previous to joining Science Club, I worked in a variety of education and training environments including teaching science, instructing rock climbing and kayaking, running youth development programs, and managing on-the-job training opportunities.

Q: What previous job or training has best prepared you for your work with SCFG?

A: No single previous job best prepared me for my time at Science Club for Girls, rather this job gives me the opportunity to combine some of my favorite parts of previous roles.

Q: What has been the hardest part about your job?

A: What I find the hardest in this job is seeing the number of schools, programs, and girls that we are not able to provide opportunities for due to resource limitations.

Q: What has surprised you most since starting your work with your org?

A: I don’t know that surprised is the right word, since it makes complete sense to me, but I am continually impressed at the caliber of staff and volunteers who contribute to SCFG because of a strong connection to the organization’s mission.
