In a recent Chicago Tribune article, GoldieBlox’s CEO Debbie Sterling says to “Introduce girls to STEM at an early age through toys and media[…]” She says this because 66 percent of fourth-grade girls say they like science and math, but only 18 percent of all college engineering majors are female. Women are capable of performing the same work that men are, so why is there so little female engagement in STEM fields?
Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson said, “Sparking a girl’s interest in STEM at an early age significantly increases the odds that she will pursue a STEM career.”
