WISP advice for precollege students and their parents:
“In adolescence, many young women believe that people who succeed in science, mathematics, and technology are naturally gifted or different from them and they question their own abilities to pursue careers in these fields.
[Seek out experiences that] help young women reevaluate their attitudes about mathematics, science and technology; gain experiences in these areas; and support educators in making these subjects accessible to all.
