100 Recommended Resources on Gender in S&E


When you use Google, or a large database, to find things, you have to
decide: “Is it any good?” 

I have collected about 100 recommended resources on women in science and engineering and posted them at http://momox.org/10x10.html. I call it the “10 x 10 List.”  The list is organized in chunks, and each chunk is a short list of selected resources customized to a particular audience. Here are some examples.

For anyone:

  • Self study guide – reading for newbies
  • Libraries, knowledge centers, bibliography

For parents and afterschool leaders:

  • Biographies of women in science and engineering (role models)
  • Video’s and CD’s designed to inspire girls
  • Guides for parents and afterschool leaders
  • S&E afterschool materials and kits

For educators and researchers:

  • Training and consulting services, technical assistance projects
  • Best practices resources – K-12
  • University-level transformation/change
  • International activity
  • National policy reports
  • Research on discrimination and women in S&E
  • Statistics on diversity in S&E
  • Title IX and S&E education

For girls and boys:

  • Games and online activities for children

There is much more out there, of course. Hope you find these helpful!
