A Kit to Develop and Present a Math/Science Conference for Females in Middle School.
Ongley, Betty Lee
A workshop on mathematics and science careers for girls was part of an effort to remediate the effects of past sex bias on females' career and vocational choices. A model for organizing and conducting a conference with emphasis on careers for women in math and science is offered for educators in this publication. The guide includes: (1) planning tips (outlining preparatory procedures); (2) proposal and budget development (reviewing essential program components); (3) workshop do's and don't's (offering suggestions to insure program effectiveness); and (4) conference materials (providing examples of survey forms, workshop agenda, announcement letters and other communications, and evaluation sheets).
