Toys And Tools In Pink: Cultural Narratives Of Gender, Science And Technology

This document provides 111 of the 246 page book by Carol Colatrella. This book analyzes the ways in which fictional and cinematic narratives consider “the leaky pipeline problem”: that women drop out of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at a number of stages of education and career. The question of what keeps women from participating in proportional numbers in scientific and technical fields has generated much scholarly and media attention in recent decades.

TSIN Tennessee STEM Innovation Network

Established by an Executive Order of the Governor, the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (the TSIN or Network) is a unique public-private collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) designed to promote and expand the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in K-12 public schools across Tennessee. Battelle was chosen as the managing partner because of its success creating the Ohio STEM Learning Network in its home state, an effort that inspired the creation of the TSIN. The TSIN is funded through Race to the Top and serves as the state’s primary vehicle for aligning and coordinating STEM education policies, practices, and partners. Tennessee is rich in STEM resources, from heavy industry and agriculture to a robust automotive sector, deep healthcare experience, logistics genius, music entrepreneurship, and internationally recognized research institutions. The goal of the TSIN is to leverage these resources – the knowledge, skill, and acumen of Tennessee’s K-12, Higher Education, Business, and Community partners – to amplify opportunities for all students.

Nissan driving local education initiatives

For more than 20 years, Nissan has helped local teachers enhance classroom lessons through a partnership with the Business Education Partnership Foundation. In the past five years, the automaker has put $275,000 into local classrooms by giving educators the chance to apply for mini-grants worth up to $500. Applications are accepted each fall and spring and are judged blindly. View External Website

Inspiring IDeAs for Girls

There are approximately 16 million female students enrolled in middle schools and high schools in the United States today. Of these girls, only about 1% will go on to receive a degree in engineering, while 8% of the boys they go to school with will receive engineering degrees. Women's Initiative is working to change this, one presentation at a time.View External Website

Who Earns Bachelor’s Degrees in Science and Engineering?

Throughout the 2000s, about one-third of all bachelor’s degrees conferred by U.S. colleges and universities were in S&E fields. The number of S&E bachelor's degrees awarded annually rose steadily from 398,602 in 2000 to 525,374 in 2010. Women received a slim majority of these degrees in every year. Key Observations: The number of S&E bachelor’s degrees awarded to women rose from 200,952 in 2000 to 264,283 in 2010. The number of S&E bachelor’s degrees earned by men over this period increased from 197,650 to 261,091. Between 2000 and 2010, the annual number of S&E bachelor’s degrees increased by 32% for both women and men.View External Website
