Abstract:
"There is a place for all girls and young women--not just the science fair winners and robotics club members--in STEM classes and careers. To succeed in science and tech fields today, girls don't have to change who they are. A girl who combines her natural talents, interests, and dreams with STEM skills has a greater shot at a career she loves and a salary she deserves. The authors present compelling research in a conversational, accessible style and provide specific advice and takeaways for each stage of schooling from elementary school through college, followed by comprehensive STEM resources. This isn't a book about raising competitive, test-acing girls in lab coats; this is about raising happy, confident girls who realize the world of opportunities before them"-- Provided by publisher.

"Count Girls In encourages parents and other role models to raise authentic young women who have the confidence to put STEM education to work in a way that best serves them and their passions"-- Provided by publisher.
