Manual on Program Operations for the Visiting Women Scientists Program.
Conaway, Larry E.; Weiss, Iris R.
This manual represents an effort to communicate the experiences of the Visiting Women Scientists Program to those who may want to establish similar programs. The guide presents an overview, describes materials and procedures, and discusses those parts of the program which were not successful. The program, including a pilot project and final study, involved 91 women scientists, accompanied by field representatives, who met with more than 40,000 tenth-grade students. Described are the selection of the scientists, the roles of the field representatives and school contact persons, and procedures for selecting and contacting schools. (SA)
