The Sisters in Science Program: A Three Year Analysis.
Hammrich, Penny L.; Richardson, Greer; Livingston, Beverly
In 1974, the Women's Educational Equity Act expanded math, science, and technology programs for all females. Current reform movements focus on providing more equitable education by changing the curriculum, teaching, and assessment. Research suggests that girls and boys currently receive different education and that girls have less exposure to science equipment than boys. The Sisters in Science (SIS) Program focuses on fourth and sixth grade students, its goals being to increase: (1) interest, achievement, self-esteem, environmental awareness, career awareness, and attitudes in the areas of mathematics and science; (2) inservice and preservice teachers' knowledge of the relationship between gender and effective instruction; and (3) parental knowledge of the importance of science and mathematics education in the lives of their children.
