    Tips for engaging young girls in engineering

    piuswong_pioslabs

      We spoke to two nonprofits who specialize in teaching and inspiring girls from kindergarten to eighth grade to study science, technology, engineering, and math: Girlstart, based in Texas, and Scientific Adventures for Girls, based in Oakland, California.  They have different histories but share a similar mission, as well as a more hands-on, inquiry-based or project-based educational philosophy.  If you're looking for ideas on how to do something similar, please listen in to their insights: The Nonprofit Push for Girls in Engineering by The K12 Engineering Education Podcast | Free Listening on SoundCloud
