This month, we are excited to bring you the STEM Resources Bibliography. It'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.

Download the bibliography for instant access to these resources.

The 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.
