Girls Go Tech – supporting girls in math, science and technology

Normally I hate pop-up flashing ads, but when this one appeared on-screen yesterday quoting statistics on how many girls drop out of math and science – because these subjects are not considered by girls to be something they can succeed at – I felt compelled to click and learn more.

Where I ended up was the Girls Go Tech site, compiled and supported by the american Girl Scout movement. I was impressed by the positive message and the friendliness of the site. They included a few on-line activities, talked about careers for women in the areas of math and science and technology and provided a link to a really great booklet to support parents in encouraging their girls to explore math, science and technology at home and outdoors.

Worth a read, me thinks.
