    Indiana, Girls and STEM Education: An Infographic Indiana, Girls and STEM Education: An Infographic Presentation Transcript

    • Indiana, Girls and STEM • 7% of the Population in the state are girls ages 10-19.1
    • STEM - by 2018: • Indiana will be ranked #21 in projected STEM jobs, and will need 123,000 STEM workers.2 Majority of jobs in STEM by 2018 will be in Computing & Engineering.2 But, Girls’ interests in Computing & Engineering are actually DECREASING.3
    • Girls v. Boys in Indiana: 2012 AP Testing in STEM Boys out performed girls on ALL STEM AP Exams in Indiana in 2012.4
    • Girls’ perceptions of STEM • “57% of girls aged 14-17 believe they’d have to work harder than a man to be taken seriously in a STEM job.”5 • Male students are over 3 times more likely to be interested in STEM majors/careers than female students.6
    • Why do girls need STEM? • Indiana currently has the 6th widest pay gap in the country. For every dollar a man makes in Indiana, a woman makes only 73 cents.7 • Women with STEM jobs earned 33% more than comparable women in non-STEM jobs. The gender wage gap is smaller in STEM careers for women.8 $1.00 > 0.73
    • How Do We Fix This? • “To get girls hooked on STEM, you have to reach them BEFORE middle school, when their interest in math and science often wanes.”9 • Support the #STEM Princess Project on Kickstarter:10 http://kck.st/16De3lT
