Author Pamela Cosman is passionate about more girls choosing STEM for their career path — especially engineering. This e-book is meant for young women going into STEM, and for parents of girls who may be thinking about STEM, as well as those not thinking about it. Social science research on gender in STEM is a great deal richer and deeper than it was 40 years ago, and author Pamela Cosman wants to offer up some of her own experiences as a female engineer; and what she has learned from reading research papers, as well as from her own research. It amounts to a great deal of accumulated understanding the author hopes can be useful for STEM girls starting on their educational and career pathways, and for their parents.
