      Since its founding in 1994, Science Club for Girls (SCFG) has strived to provide the very best in girl-specific programming, by connecting girls in K-12 grades, especially those from underrepresented groups, with female mentor-scientists through free science and engineering programs in a fun, nurturing, interactive environment. More than 1,000 girls participate annually in SCFG programs that take place in five cities in eastern Massachusetts (Cambridge, Lawrence, Boston, Newton and Fitchburg), as well as in Pokuase, Ghana.
