Title: Great Science For Girls PDF
Url: https://www.fhi360.org/sites/default/files/media/documents/Gender%20Eq...
Publisher: Family Health International (Organization)
Description: Funded by the National Science Foundation, Great Science for Girls has seven programs operated by intermediary organizations to provide informal opportunities for elementary to high school grade girls to explore science. Some of the programs focus specifically on astronomy, women scientists, engineering, and scientific inquiry. Visitors can find basic information about the target audience of the program, the setting, how long each session takes, and the cost to the organization for materials is provided in the introduction to each program. The website provides "Evaluation and Results" and "Materials and Activities" information for each of the seven curricula, under the "Curriculum" tab. The "Resources and Research" tab has resources for practitioners, staff, organizations, role models, and, of course, girls. There is also a section on "Research" that provides access to documents like the "Status and Participation of Women in STEM", "Effective Practices in STEM", and "Afterschool Program Effectiveness". For any educator looking to encourage young women to discover STEM disciplines, this site is well worth a visit.
