Girls and Science: A Training Module on Motivating Girls to Embark on Science and Technology Careers
Social and economic development of a country is closely linked to the educational level of its female population. As women in the developing world are generally under-represented in science and technology, this training module aims to address the inherent gender disparities in this field, with a specific focus on Africa. This training manual developed and distributed by UNESCO is written to teach educators about gender disparities in science. Six units provide training, career guidance information, and activities.
