“Why for girls ?”
You might have already faced such questions already. We have several pieces of answers for you.
What is it about ?
A presentation of good practices in EU to show why “girls only” actions are needed to raise awareness for girls around STEM and recommendation to offer them in a mixed school environment. This will be supported by a collection of interventions from non-profit organisations active in the EU. It will be also a reminder that science was taught differently to boys and girls in a recent past and that has a strong impact on girls react to STEM nowadays.
How to use it ?
The practices include guidelines on how to best respond to the arguments regarding activity ‘only for girls’ activities. This can be an inspiration for creating a classroom debate, what is also suggested in the guidelines, and go through particular questions/doubts and create arguments and then compare them with the ones used in the file. These guidelines can also be used by teachers as a basis for creation of some STEM activities for girls and understanding their importance in the teaching activities.
