I have a long term goal of teaching STEM in a high needs elementary school, particularly in the Baltimore area. I have an interest in young females and how they can accelerate in STEM subjects and develop a strong interest in the subjects.

This 2013 NPR article speaks on how the number of girls and women studying the sciences has steadily increased each year, but there still exists a gender gap in higher education and the work force. A 23 min audio is linked with article. Very interesting to listen to. Take some time to listen or read The STEM Gender Gap article here: http://www.npr.org/2013/08/16/212613885/the-stem-gender-gap An...

Thanks Jacqueline! You make a great point. Is this the conference you were speaking about? http://intouch.ccgmag.com/page/woc_conference ? Are there any other links you could link me to regarding this topic?

I just stumbled across this website that speaks about stereotypes still being presented within the media and why it may be why subjects such as math and science are dominated by men. The give an example of The Big Bang Theory. Women still face gender bias in math, science fields. http://www.wbez.org/blogs/leah-pickett/2013-10/women-still-face-gender-bias-math-science-fields-108870

5 To the point!
I am currently in an Astrobiology class and I enjoyed how this article provides the brief over of Astrobiology and how it connects to NGSS. Astrobiology is not specifically cited within the curriculum, but the articles show how you can incorporate into your classroom through the disciplines. This attractive article provides resources for teachers to use from grades of elementary and middle school.

4 Explanation behind the story
I enjoyed this chapter because of the story in particular. Most students have questions that relate to Jennys. The 11 page chapter provides explanations for why Jenny saw the change in colors and a deeper understanding of light. Standards are given to show how we can connect this reading to the curriculum.
