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/10×10.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.
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
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!
