    In the classroom, engineering calls for teens to apply what they know about science and math—and their learning is enhanced as a result. At the same time, because engineering activities are based on real-world technologies and problems, they help teens see how disciplines like math and science are relevant to their lives. Boston’s WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) and similar groups brought together like-minded women to lobby for anti-discrimination measures and Author: Rebecca Onion.

    “Overnight, the city managed to procure thousands of cardboard boxes, fifteen hundred hard hats, a few thousand rolls of packing tape, and the services of Eric Lundquist, a mechanical engineer and former popcorn distributor who had reinvented himself as a expert in drying out wet things.   MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - According to statistics, women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce. So a Connecticut woman has created a coloring book to inspire girls to consider.

      Teenage girls rule themselves out of engineering careers. Girls trump boys at science GCSEs, but few go on to physics and maths A-levels, which rules them out of rewarding engineering careers. Too many girls and women are held back by biases, social norms and expectations influencing the quality of the education they receive and the subjects they study. They are particularly under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, and consequently in STEM careers.
