If you're a girl, you probably should be. It is estimated that by the year 2010 the need for qualified personnel in science and technology careers will increase dramatically. Yet right now only 16 percent of women are involved in science and engineering careers despite the fact that women make up 45 percent of the total labor force. All this means that opportunities abound for women in the sciences.This upbeat, very useful resource guide will give young women everything they need to start exploring and planning a career in science, math, or technology. Part I introduces readers to the many exciting career opportunities available in the sciences and provides specific strategies for planning for a future career in these areas. Part II recounts true stories of girls and young women in the sciences, detailing how they got involved and what they have accomplished. Part III offers timelines of extraordinary women throughout history, inspiring quotations, a list of Web sites specifically geared toward women in the sciences, suggestions for science-oriented computer software, and many other recommended resources.If you have an interest in science, this excellent guide, full of useful information, will start you on the path toward realizing your career dreams.Frances A.

Raising Girls to Be Tomorrow’s Leaders

Page: 400

View: 3358

From an engineer and entrepreneur, a conversation-changing parenting book about how to engage young women in science, technology, engineering, and math, filled with practical advice for both parents and educators. As the female CEO of a tech startup, Dr. Cristal Glangchai was outnumbered twenty to one. At Google, Twitter, and Facebook, women currently fill just ten to twenty percent of technical jobs. While career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math have increased dramatically in the past twenty years, the achievement gap between men and women has only grown wider. In VentureGirls, Glangchai offers a unique solution based on her own experience as an engineer and entrepreneur as well as the founder of the VentureLab, an academy of entrepreneurship and technology for girls. Practical, accessible, and filled with success stories, VentureGirls argues that a key part of raising strong, confident young women is giving them the tools of entrepreneurship to engage in STEM. Entrepreneurship isn’t just about starting companies, Glangchai writes, it is a skillset and a way of thinking that is particularly useful in the fields of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. Entrepreneurship involves identifying needs, brainstorming creative solutions, innovating, and taking calculated risks. In short, it’s about having a vision and making it a reality. The true value in learning and practicing entrepreneurship, Glangchai argues, lies in nurturing and growing an overall mindset—the ability to learn from failure and to work well with others to bring your ideas to life. Deeply informative, warm, and grounded in real-world experience, VentureGirls includes a plethora of activities and lessons that focus on strengthening kids’ ingenuity and resilience. VentureGirls is essential reading for anyone who wants to raise girls and young women who realize their strength, engage in the world, and feel empowered to make a positive impact.
