Or a brilliant computer geek hunched over a keyboard. These are stereotypes we associate with STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

Girls in high school are &nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5;">excelling in reading and writing, and they’re making gains in math and science. Moreover, women are applying to colleges in greater numbers than men – and earning more degrees.</span> Tue, 05 Feb 2013 01:59:13 +0000 Laura Flynn 22634 at http://kalw.org Closing the engineering gender gap at Oakland Tech
