Maker movement: Bridging the gap between girls and STEM ~ ISTE

Maker movement: Bridging the gap between girls and STEM ~ ISTE | STEM | Scoop.it

by Lisa Abel-Palmieri

 

"Girls want to change the world.

 

"Eighty-eight percent say they want to make a difference with their lives, and 90 percent express a desire to help people, according to the Girl Scouts’ “Generation STEM” research. Girls have traditionally achieved this goal through people-oriented careers rather than through applying technology and scientific expertise to change the way things are done.

 

"However, if more girls learn that STEM careers open up new avenues to help and serve, more girls will choose STEM.

 

"Maker education allows girls to experience in a fun, tangible way how they can apply STEM skills to solve real problems — all while developing dexterity, learning about ideation and practicing teamwork. By giving girls the opportunity to make and tinker, we also help them develop their creative confidence so they persevere in pursuing STEM majors and careers. The “Generation STEM” report found that 92 percent of girls who engage with STEM subjects believe that they are smart enough to pursue a career in STEM — versus 68 percent of girls who don’t display an interest in science, technology, engineering or math."
