Don Levine
"For a long time, we heard from educators, 'Well, we can't find any girls who WANT to be welders'- but now, there's an increased perception that supporting female students in male-dominated careers is a much bigger deal, and there are resources available that can give all students a better ability to explore and pursue their interests. IWITTS materials like the STEM bibliography and Outreach Kit are a huge part of the resources we can offer to districts to help them serve their students. It's not just about Perkins compliance anymore."
~ Don Levine, CTE Education Specialist, Alaska Department of Education and Early Development
About the STEM Resources for Instructors to Help Women and Girls: Annotated Bibliography
STEMIt's not that easy to find off-the-shelf materials for recruiting and retaining women and girls in STEM, especially free resources. As a busy educator, you just don't have the time to spend hours doing internet research on classroom activities that will appeal to female learning styles, or on identifying female role models and associations.

That's why we created a bibliography that does this research for you. The best part is it's a downloadable book with clickable hotlinks that bring you directly to the websites for these primarily free resources.
The STEM Bibliography includes links to:
  • Free videos with female role models in trades, technology and science careers
  • Online resources for finding female role models and e-mentors
  • Sample curriculum and tools for teaching to female learning styles
  • Websites designed for girls and women interested in trades and technology
  • Out-of-school and summer programs for girls in STEM
  • Online communities for girls, women and educators in STEM
  • How to find gender-segregated occupational data in your state
Sample Entries:
Each entry in the bibliography includes a link to the online resource, a quick summary of what you'll find if you follow the link, and helpful categories such as school level, program area, and audience.
