Journal of Science Education and Technology, v9 n1 p67-78 Mar 2000
Examines a three-month software design activity in which mixed teams of girls and boys designed and implemented multimedia astronomy resources for younger students. Finds that the configuration of social, physical, and cognitive spaces in the project environment contributed to a positive change in girls' level of access. Discusses implications for encouraging gender equity in computer use. (Contains 38 references.) (Author/WRM)
