Girls Go Tech

Girls (and parents of girls!), check out the website Girls Go Tech, a partnership initiative from the Ad Council and the Girl Scouts of America.  This site provides resources and information about careers in math, science and technology.  The site also provides games designed just for girls, including Cryptic Codes(create and decode mesages using cryptology), The World Around Us (create your own mandala by rotating and scaling different shapes), Think about Thinking (follow directions that try to trick your brain), and Sounds of Silence (compose your own song using the digital composer).  Parents, be sure to check out tips for encouraging your girls in the subjects of math, science, and technology in the Girls Go Tech booklet!

How else can teachers encourage female students to pursue careers in math, science, and technology (or just have fun with it in class?)?
