This guide is based on a systematic literature review of recent research published in the last five years about STEM education engagement, particularly for young girls and women. We present a summary of key research findings aligned to GiST’s Seven Principles for Inclusive STEM Education, with suggested practical strategies and contemporary resources that teachers can use to bring these critical Principles to life to create an engaging and inclusive STEM classroom.
This project was funded by Education Services Australia and undertaken in collaboration with The University of Adelaide.
A diverse STEM workforce is critical for economic growth and prosperity. Schools and classrooms play a pivotal role in engaging all learners in STEM.
Using these seven principles, you can design lessons that will engage not only girls, but all your students in STEM.
Follow these steps to adapt your lesson to be more gender-inclusive.
