SciGirls

January 14, 2013 -- Submitted by Rachel Tringali, a reader from New York, NY, who is affiliated with the site.

Calling all SciGirls…! Every girl can be a scientist, tech guru, engineer or mathematician with the interactive SciGirls website that aims to transform the way tween girls look at science, technology, engineering and math (or STEM)! The fun, informative and very engaging site works hand-in-hand with the groundbreaking, Emmy Award-winning SciGirls TV series airing on PBS stations from coast-to-coast. Today, it’s especially important to foster girls’ interest in STEM since total employment in science and engineering occupations will increase at nearly double the overall growth rate for all jobs between 2004 and 2014. Sadly, women currently represent only a quarter of the college-educated workforce in science and engineering positions (even though they comprise nearly half of the workforce with degrees!).
