Girls in Science

Published by the National Science Teachers Association Press, Girls in Science: A Framework for Action was written by Liesl Chatman, Katherine Nielsen, Erin Strauss, and Kimberly Tanner with J Myron Atkin, Marjorie Bequette, and Michelle Phillips.

Girls in Science is a 2009 Finalist for a Distinguished Achievement Award of the Association of Educational Publishers. The book is drawn from SEP’s 1994-2003 Triad program, funded by the National Science Foundation.

Triad brought scientists and teachers together to lead after-school science clubs with a focus on gender equitable science teaching. Participation in Triad required a commitment to extensive professional development on the part of both the teachers and scientists. The Triad community was highly collaborative, and participants together developed a framework for gender equitable science teaching and learning. This framework and reflections written by Triad teacher and scientist participants ultimately led to the publication in 2008 of Girls in Science: A Framework for Action. More information and the book are available through the NSTA Science Store.
