The numbers are striking: Girls are graduating from high school on nearly equal footing with boys in terms of math and science achievement. When paired with computing, engineering stands out from the broader STEM category as one of the fields that offers the best opportunities for the greatest number of people. Combined, the two fields make up 80 percent of STEM jobs and tend to offer highly lucrative career paths. While solving the gender representation equation is no small or easy task, we know that getting and keeping more girls interested in engineering is a key first step.

Science can be fun for teenagers, although some activities require adult supervision. To allow students to actually see forces of nature like air pressure and centrifugal force in action, science teachers can allow them to conduct dramatic science experiments. These hands-on experiments engage the student and make for a memorable learning experience. In this physics experiment, a hard-boiled egg is sucked into a bottle by air pressure, and then pushed back out. The experiment uses fire and requires the supervision of an adult.
Toppenish High School senior Gaby Rodriguez spent nearly her entire final year of high school conducting a social experiment that put her square in the crosshairs of criticism, rumors, and humiliation. For six and a half months, she led her fellow students as well as the entire teaching staff to believe that she was about to become a teen mother. And Gaby recorded what was said about her and read it front of the entire school.
