This student workbook with the teacher guide is a great student-centered tool to support equity in math and science education. It is an innovative resource that can be used with all students – girls and boys – to help break down gender stereotypes about scientists.
The set includes:
- Profiles of seven minority women scientists who have surmounted barriers to forge the way for themselves and future scientists;
- Science lessons for the classroom that cover such topics as acid/base chemistry, earth science, wildlife and environmental science, and biology; and
- Life skills lessons for the classroom that cover topics such as getting college information from the school counselor, identifying a support system, reaching goals, knowing self-worth, having community pride, overcoming stereotypes, and linking hobbies with career choices.
