Handel, Ruth D.
Gifted Education International, v9 n3 p172-76 1994
This paper explores intergenerational socialization into science through case studies of eight research biologists who are mothers of daughters. The study examined ways in which mothers foster or fail to foster orientation to science fields, daughters' perspectives on science professions, influential factors, and the daughters' pride in their mothers.
