Not enough American students want to be engineers, mathematicians, or scientists. The Obama administration wants to change that, and it is spending money to do it. The government will invest $3 billion to educate young Americans in science, technology, engineering, and math. The four areas together are known as STEM. Many jobs in the STEM fields will open in the coming years. The U.S. government wants to increase the number of Americans who can get those jobs. But girls appear far less interested in STEM subjects than boys. Only 25 percent of STEM students are girls. Debbie Sterling is an engineer. She invented a construction toy for girls. The name of the toy is “Goldie Blox.” Ms. Sterling hopes Goldie Blox will help girls become engineers and builders. Experts say parents should do more than just buy toys to interest their daughters in STEM subjects. They should also provide a good education. At school, girls should participate in projects that require teamwork and creative thinking. Women in scientific and technical jobs are also working to encourage young women to explore STEM. One is Anu Tewary. After she had a daughter, she started Technovation Challenge. Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn how to start a company and become high-tech inventors. Since 2009 over 2000 girls have developed mobile phone applications. There’s a good chance that soon, more young women who use mobile phones will also develop programs for them.
