Making Science Appeal to Girls
McCrea, Bridget
Principal Leadership, v11 n8 p28-32 Apr 2011
It is no secret that many girls seem disinterested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), but strategies for building their interest are sometimes elusive. Because STEM career paths are not always perceived as "natural" for women, educators do no't always push their female students to explore these educational areas. As a result, girls tend to lean toward liberal arts, humanities, and other nontechnical degrees, leaving noticeable gaps in the STEM arena. This article identifies some strategies that will encourage female students' interest in STEM studies. (Contains 8 online resources.)
