Title: Voices of Young Women in Engineering
Url: http://www.iwitts.org/proven-practices/topics/retention/268-voices-of...
Creator: Bennett, Dorothy
Publisher: National Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science
Description: This report discusses the experiences of five 17 year old female pre-engineering students at a specialized science high school. Observations and interviews revealed that "there are a number of cultural and psychological pressures that they contend with on a regular basis in the classroom — pressures that have convinced many to opt out of pursuing engineering further." Consequently, alternative methods of intervention for educating young women in science are discussed.
