12 Inspiring STEM Books for Girls

And a 2017 survey by Microsoft found that girls in Europe begin to show interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields at 11 years old but lose it at around 15—and a lack of female role models is one reason for the drop in interest. That’s why we’ve created this list of books showing girls and women who are passionate about STEM fields. After asking librarians for recommendations, pulling still more from School Library Journal, and checking best-seller and award lists, we selected picture books, biographies, novels, and memoirs appropriate for kids from kindergarten to 12th grade. These books—most of which were published in 2016—represent a wide range of STEM fields, from marine biology to volcanology to math.

The social and labour market challenges of the 21st century require dramatically different learning and teaching practices from the players of education. Children need to acquire new competences, to which teaching practices must adapt to, as well. Another challenge which teachers face is that they need to respond to the requirements of the changing professional and social environment much faster, which also requires them to adapt constantly, both in terms of methodology and their specific fields. Consequently, constant self-development has gained much more significance. STEM 2026 Vision for Innovation September 2016.

STEM 2026: A Vision for Innovation in STEM Education. A strong science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is becoming increasingly recognized as a key driver of opportunity, and data show the need for STEM knowledge and skills will grow and continue into the future.

STEM 2026: A Vision for Innovation in STEM Education

This report summarizes the results of discussion-based workshops where 30 experts and thought leaders in STEM teaching and learning were invited to exchange ideas and develop recommendations for the future of STEM education, an aspirational vision—“STEM 2026”—for STEM education to promote lifelong learning among all youth and in all communities. Graduates who have practical and relevant STEM precepts embedded into their educational experiences will be in high demand in all job sectors. In recognition of the widening skills and opportunity gaps in STEM, the Obama Administration has initiated several efforts to motivate action. 6 Ways of Building the STEM Education Path for Tomorrow's Classrooms.

They have an obsessive focus on technology and a closet full of rumpled hoodies. They're male. Cultural perceptions about who is a computer scientist — or an engineer or a physicist — are a big reason why women are still underrepresented in certain science, engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM) fields, according to researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle. "The assumptions about what it takes to be a good computer scientist or engineer are very narrow," said Sapna Cheryan, a UW psychology professor and lead author of a study published this week in the journal Psychological Bulletin.

"If you have narrow stereotypes, then it's going to end up attracting a more narrow band of people, including a narrow band of men," she told Mashable.

Women‘s Colleges and the STEM Gender Gap – Association for Psychological Science.

When you think ‘scientist’, what are they wearing? When you hear ‘tech entrepreneur’, what are they doing? If you had images of men, white lab coats and geeks writing code, you’re not alone. In fact most people have well entrenched stereotypes when they think of people in STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and maths.) These stereotypes help to explain the underrepresentation of women in STEM. In my work supporting women in leadership I constantly see female potential being left on the table, but nowhere more so than in STEM.

Given the current numbers and glacial pace of change to date, we’re decades from true gender parity in many developed western countries like Australia and the US.
