This packet of resource materials contains four sections: curriculum activities, a career guide for women, a role models list, and an annotated bibliography. These materials deal with women in science and mathematics and cover primary through high school educational levels. Skill Activities are outlined for use at various (K-12) levels which were designed to aid the development of scientific and mathematical skills and show the relevance of these to technical jobs. The Career Guide describes careers in selected areas of mathematics and science. The Role Models section provides information about the accomplishments of women in the sciences, including Nobel Prize winners, prominent black women scientists, inventors, and prominent scientists in each of the major science areas. An annotated list of materials, including juvenile fiction and nonprint media, that introduce scientific topics, female role models, and biographies of women scientists, is also provided. (CS)
