Title: New Formulas for America's Workforce 2: Girls in Science and Engineering PDF
Url: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2006/nsf0660/nsf0660.pdf
Publisher: National Science Foundation (U.S.)
Description: The first New Formulas covered about 220 grants from 1993 through 2001. New Formulas 2 updates the first volume by describing the roughly 100 grants made from 2002 through 2005. There are fewer educational demonstration projects but more social science research studies, dissemination activities, and projects that will provide technical assistance for the implementation of best practices. The publication led to:

New collaborations among education researchers
New and greater investments in educational programs for female students
Better understanding of gender differences in career interests and in how students engage in science and mathematics
Awareness of and better access to widely scattered resources and information
Deeper comprehension of the educational impacts of NSF's investments
Faster and easier press access to findings and leading experts in a field of study that crosses many disciplines

In short, the book informed public discourse about the state of gender diversity in science and engineering, the critical role of education in preparing the workforce, and the constraints on national competitiveness that can result from failing to address diversity issues. We expect the same spectrum of groups to be interested in this volume as the first: teachers, faculty, counselors, administrators, after-school program providers, researchers, deans, colleges of education, trainers of teachers, professional associations, foundations, industry, policymakers, the public media, parents, and students. All are interested in better education, better access to education, better student achievement, and more entrants (and more diverse entrants) into science and engineering careers.
