Nicole Else-Quest, assistant professor of psychology joins WYPR’s “Midday with Dan Rodricks” to address gender gap in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) industry, and to discuss findings from her latest study on math and science attitudes and achievement as it relates to gender and ethnicity, published in the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly.
“Our first goal was to conduct a study that examined how boys and girls achieved in math and science and feel about math and science,” said Dr. Else-Quest. “And what we found was girls and boys perform equally in math and science, for the most part. There’s no evidence that the girls can’t do math and science.”
