[EDEQUITY Dialogue] Girls in Science

Research has shown that girls process information differently from boys.
How then can we ensure that parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and
administrators, encourage girls pick science for career goals?

Also, how do we promote good "mentoring" techniques among fathers in their
interaction with their daughters? For instance, buying scientific toys for
their daughters at an early age, and taking them to science fairs and
museums when they take their sons? Should we use the Parent Teachers
Association (PTA), School Newsletters, or Community Organizations(Science
oriented) to reach Dads? Can anyone think of any other communication
