Why SCFG? It has frustrated me to no end that in primary and secondary schools, interest or excellence in STEM related fields has been attributed to male students and professors. The amount of knowledge and experience that women can and do provide to STEM is remarkable and often overlooked, and this phenomena starts at an early age, when science and math are deemed "uncool" or "nerdy" by both girls and boys. Science Club For Girls is an alternative route away from this false stereotype that has plagued STEM for decades. Encouraging young girls at an early age to love science, be curious, and take chances is the first step to making this stereotype obsolete.
