Social Science Journal for Teens
article banner: How do gender stereotypes impact girls interest in science

The Science Journal for Kids and Teens has recently published I-LABS work on gender stereotypes, and how they negatively impact girls’ motivation to pursue computer science and engineering careers.  The Journal’s goal is to adapt scientific articles that have already appeared in peer-reviewed publications, but make them more accessible to middle and high school audiences. They use easy-to-understand language, and develop PDF and YouTube resources to accompany them. In addition, the Journal provides resources for teachers, to help them use the findings in the classroom.  Thanks to the Science Journal for Kids and Teens for their help broadening the audience for this important work.
