Education Week: Evidence Persists of STEM Achievement Gap for Girls

Education Week: Evidence Persists of STEM Achievement Gap for Girls | STEM Education for Girls | Scoop.it

In the US, girls are scoring lower on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) standardized tests even though their grades are higher. Is it "stereotype threat"? That is, are they performing badly because, as a supposedly less-able group, the pressure of the test is more intense? Lots to think about in this excellent article.

I'd like to know the gender breakdown for teachers in these advanced high school STEM classes - when I was young my high school STEM teachers were all men, but I hope things have changed since then.

US NSF - Multimedia Gallery - Students Create 3-D Objects in the Classroom | STEM Education for Girls | Scoop.it

A middle-school student at the Next Generation School in Champaign, Ill., creates a 3-D object with a classroom 3-D printer. Students in grades K-12 can "print" 3-D objects from computer-generated sources right in the classroom! The rapid prototyping or 3-D lithography process. The process is based on a research project that was headed by Nicholas Fang, an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and developed at the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (NanoCEMMS) at the university. NanoCemms is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center.
