I think an important part of getting girls into science is to start early and be sure not to reinforce the stereotype that girls are not good in science. Encouraging group work is a step in the right direction. When students work in group, try assigning roles to students within the groups so girls will have a chance to lead and play an important role within the group.

Using the toys called K'NEX is a great way to learn about energy and motion. In my science methods class last month, my professor built a battery operated rollercoaster and was able to start and stop the rollercoaster to explain the type of energy that was taking place at the particular position. Hopefully this will be engaging for your students!
