Good morning,

I am an elementary teacher and a graduate student at Saginaw Valley State
University in Michigan.

I am interested in corresponding with individuals regarding girls lack of
interest in science and technology. When does the gender diversity begin
and what causes it? At what grade level is the gender difference begin?
What research has been done on the subject?

My reason for the interest is because my experience teaching science to
fifth graders and the inability to find much reasearch on the subject at
elementary level. The reach I have found was done at the middle school,
high school and college level.

How can I get and keep girls interested in science?

please respond to:
