Research

  • Teaching science for all: helping women fulfill their potential - Currently, less than one-quarter of bachelor degrees awarded in fields such as computer science, engineering, and physics go to women, and the attrition rate for female science graduate students is notably higher than for males (Hill et al., 2010). Over the last few decades, the number of women in STEM fields has been growing substantially, yet a gender gap still exists. (By Mandy McLean, February 25, 2015.)
  • A Foundation for Understanding Gender Differences - First in a four-part series, "Closing the Gender Gap in Your STEM Classroom," that bridges research to practice by providing you with seven key practices to make your STEM courses more inclusive. (By Helena Isabel Scutt, February 7, 2014.)
  • STEM Classroom Scaffolds - Third in a four-part series, "Closing the Gender Gap in Your STEM Classroom," that bridges research to practice by providing you with seven key practices to make your STEM courses more inclusive. (By Helena Isabel Scutt, March 19, 2014.)
