I have to admit I lean towards project base learning that incorporates problem based learning.

Roller Coasters

Roller Coasters | Science at the Webb | Scoop.it
Many extreme roller coaster these days have vertical loops. Have you noticed that these loops are never circular? Why is this? They all, also, seem to have the same similar ‘inverted teardrop’ appearance. Why is this? Clearly there is the same physics and mathematics involved in their designs. Let’s take a look and see if we can derive a formula to describe their shape. Why are roller coaster loops not circular?

It's all about role models...so how will get more of these in front of children?

Catherine Cronin's comment, August 12, 2013 11:25 AM
Thanks for sharing this, Marsha. The under-representation of women in physics, engineering & computer science/IT is a persistent problem. I did research on this in the mid-1990s (examining the previous 20 years of research!). The key to addressing this issue is changing culture, i.e. changing the masculine culture of physics & tech subjects, academic departments and workplaces. Of course, all of these are socially constructed. In my view, the problem with focusing solely on role models is that this usually means asking the few women physicists/engineers/etc. (the 15%) to act as role models/mentors for girls & younger women, without requiring the majority of physicists/engineers/etc. (the 85%) to change at all! Thus the culture does not change. The so-called "leaky pipeline" of women out of tech subjects is testament to this.
