Bringing girls to STEM

When high school students are asked about their interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers, about a third of the boys say they are very interested. Only one in five of the girls say the same thing.

This data has not changed since 2003, said Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow. Her group has been polling and collecting data on students and technology for decades.
