3 Projects That Aim To Unleash Girls' Inner Geeks ~ readwrite

3 Projects That Aim To Unleash Girls' Inner Geeks ~ readwrite | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Stephanie Chan

 

"Long underrepresented in science and engineering, women are badly in need of a girl power-up. There simply aren't enough of them to fill voracious demand for technical jobs in the market today. By 2020, there will be 1.5 million too few U.S. college grads to fill the rising number of highly skilled jobs.

 

"Women could make up a good chunk of that shortfall, but only if more of them enter the pipeline. As of 2009, women earned just 31% of degrees in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), and women scientists and engineers only comprised 35% and 15% of the total, respectively.

 

"With people in short supply and technical skills in such high demand, it's a really good time to start thinking about how women could be changing the tech and science world as we know it. Here are several projects whose leaders have been doing just that."

I prefer love and freedom and look everything through these criterias.
