Count girls in Empowering girls to combine any interests with STEM to open up a world of opportunity

Karen Panetta

Book - 2018

"There is a place for all girls and young women--not just the science fair winners and robotics club members--in STEM classes and careers. To succeed in science and tech fields today, girls don't have to change who they are. A girl who combines her natural talents, interests, and dreams with STEM skills has a greater shot at a career she loves and a salary she deserves. The authors present compelling research in a conversational, accessible style and provide specific advice and takeawa...ys for each stage of schooling from elementary school through college, followed by comprehensive STEM resources. This isn't a book about raising competitive, test-acing girls in lab coats; this is about raising happy, confident girls who realize the world of opportunities before them"--
