Although great progress is being made, only 5% of women who enter college end up graduating with engineering degrees. In “Generation STEM”, the Girl Scout Research Institute found that:
“About half of girls polled believe STEM is not a typical career path for girls”
“Girls are interested in making a difference in the world and need more STEM exposure, education, and experience with the help of key adults in their lives in order to see how STEM fields can achieve their goals now and in the future”
The report concludes by charging “educators, parents, and mentors” to “encourage girls to solve problems, ask questions, and to engage in creative and hands-on activities”.
For this purpose, Dallas Society of Women Engineers come together with the local college sections and corporate sponsors to present our award winning:
