  • 15. 2006 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Girls (Primary - elementary)  Up to around the age of 12, girls have confidence in their ability to do science subjects and aspire for science professions.  Their reasons were of economical, social status and professional nature.

Reasons given included:  Discouraging remarks from teachers, boys and fellow girls and lack of parental support.  Lack of role models.  Teaching methods which are mostly theoretical with little hands-on.  Misconceptions or stereotypes e.g. women in science are ugly, masculine, disorganized , have no time for their families and don’t make good wives. 15 What were the key findings by my students?
  • 16. 2006 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Women in science –role models (School heads, technicians, engineers, doctors…) 1. A girl can become a scientist and still remains feminine. 2. As girls, the women scientists faced the same challenges like discouragement from peers, stereotypes but remained focused on their dreams. 3. Parental support is extremely important. 4. It is important for women to be involved in science because family life and development revolves around women. 5. Girls need to be exposed to role models. 6. It is possible for a woman to balance family and work place responsibility. 7. The is need to make teachers and schools gender sensitive. 16 What were the key findings by my students?
