One thought on “Gender and STEM”

  1. I was talking today to people in marine science who told me children learn so much more science informally through TV, youtube, museums etc than at school. I love your recommendation to have greater freedom in the curriculum – perhaps then teachers could draw on the science that children are learning outside the classroom. And if only there were, as you advise, mixed ability classrooms. Combine this with a revolution in the curriculum and I am sure we would find our very assumptions challenged about who occupies the positions of ‘high’ or ‘low’ ability. Liz
