MAGIC (More Active Girls In Computing) aims to increase the interest of middle and high school girls in STEM topics and STEM careers, by providing 1-1 mentoring to them for a period of 4-6 months. To date, MAGIC has provided 1-1 mentoring to middle and high school girls from many regions of California, including Irvine, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, Austin (Texas), Cambridge (Massachusetts), New York City, and Princeton (New Jersey). In its tenth year, MAGIC is planning to expand to more schools and regions and is actively seeking mentors.
We are looking for energetic women with careers in STEM who can serve as mentors in this program. I hope you are interested! See MAGIC's latest reviews by recent participants to get an idea of the impact you can have on the life and career of a middle or a high school girl.
