Parents, science and girls


eec-sigt-logoScience: It’s a Girl Thing! is using the power of social media to connect with parents and educators about how to foster girls’ interest in science and technology, and why that is important.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the program offers Web-based and easy-to-use resources for conducting science activities at home. It builds on everyday science that parents already know. Just as children are natural scientists, parents are natural teachers.

Science: It’s a Girl Thing! includes a series of short, entertaining and educational videos and free downloadable PDF activity cards for parents to use in working with their daughters. To access the free activity cards, visit It’s a Girl Thing on Facebook or via its Web site.
