Women and Girls in STEM


The number of women in STEM fields has grown over the past several years, but these fields remain predominantly male. A high quality STEM education focused on gender equity is key to addressing this imbalance. The Department of Education encourages educators to provide access to high-quality STEM programming for all students so that students are prepared to be innovators, problem solvers, and critical thinkers.
