The first New Formulas covered about 220 grants from 1993 through 2001. New Formulas 2 updates the first volume by describing the roughly 100 grants made from 2002 through 2005. There are fewer educational demonstration projects but more social science research studies, dissemination activities, and projects that will provide technical assistance for the implementation of best practices. The publication led to: • New collaborations among education researchers, • New and greater investments in educational programs for female students, • Better understanding of gender differences in career interests and in how students engage in science and mathematics • Awareness of and better access to widely scattered resources and information • Deeper comprehension of the educational impacts of NSF’s investments • Faster and easier press access to findings and leading experts in a field of study that crosses many disciplines In short, the book informed public discourse about the state of gender diversity in science and engineering, the critical role of education in preparing the workforce, and the constraints on national competitiveness that can result from failing to address diversity issues.View External Website151_NSF_New_Frm_Amer_Wkfc_2_Girls_in_Science_and_Engineering.pdf
