The Science of Living Spaces program provides girls aged 11-13 increased access to and awareness of the possibilities inherent in pursuing careers in science, engineering, and mathematics. Objectives of the program include expanding career knowledge and opportunities; increasing participants' knowledge of and exposure to science, engineering, and mathematics through real-life projects in computer science, engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics; overcoming stereotypic and irrational beliefs, socialized feelings, and attitudes that have a negative impact on women's selection of careers; and evaluating the project's success through the development of a guidebook on the implementation of the program so that it can be replicated. Appendices contain daily activities schedule, description of project activities, information for teachers, evaluation form, student and parent materials, and project specific measures.
