STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia

STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"I brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration.

When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."

Girls are still afraid of math, even when their moms are scientists

Girls are still afraid of math, even when their moms are scientists | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Understanding why girls do worse than boys (pdf) in math, and why they have more anxiety about the subject, is complicated. Cultural norms that favor boys, teacher bias, and even parents’ own math anxiety all seem to play a role. By that logic, things should be better in more countries where lots of women hold powerful math and engineerin

Kim Delaney's curator insight, April 30, 4:59 AM
This source presents information that suggests that girls with mothers working in STEM fields do not fare better than their female peers whose mothers do not have STEM related careers.  Rather, the lack of family flexible STEM jobs, gender stereotypes, and lack of female role models keep females from securing these generally higher paying jobs.
