Ga. Tech to host disabled STEM students in Second Life


NBER research showed that “while professor gender has little impact on male students, it has a powerful effect on female students’ performance in math and science classes, their likelihood of taking future math and science courses, and their likelihood of graduating with a STEM degree.”

The CareerWISE website, aimed at women pursuing their doctorate degrees in STEM fields, has hundreds of “HerStory” video clips of women who have navigated the difficult STEM road and established careers.

Videos include details on a wide variety of STEM fields, meaning women can find others from their particular profession, not just someone with a general STEM career, said Bianca Bernstein, an ASU counseling psychology professor and principal investigator of the CareerWISE research program grants.
