Girls are no good at tech– except maybe talking on mobile phones and texting, right?
That's another tired stereotype about girls and women that many of your students may believe. If you hear enough that you're no good at something, you can quickly come to believe that.
Teach girls that they can be talented, gifted and skilled in all kinds of technology and computer tasks, and that they can manage complexity well beyond that involved in texting or cell phone use.
Girls can make terrific programmers, information systems managers, customer tech support staff, hardware designers, software developers and tech managers– but they need to learn that they have those opportunities waiting.
Tech and computer fields are the fastest growing segment of the job market. It's an occupation that can be very well-paying. Shouldn't your female students know that? Make sure they do by posting Poster #403 today. It's part of the STEM Powered by Women series of motivational career posters. You'll want to get all of them and surround your students with the prospect of an exciting STEM career.
