Despite widespread recognition that more engagement, outreach, and representation in STEM among girls are important societal and educational goals, STEM classes at nearly all levels continue to be largely dominated by boys. Where have school-based initiatives fallen short, and how can we intentionally work to engage more girls in STEM subjects?

In this episode of Office Hours we are joined by several STEM-experienced educators including Naomi Meredith (K-5 STEM Teacher, Co-Host, The Innovative Teacher Podcast), Chris Woods (High School Math Teacher, STEM Everyday Podcast Host), Becky Schnesker (Teacher, Development Specialist, Educator-Explorer). Hosted by Pawan Wander (Co-Host, The Staff Room Podcast).
