A free book for your scientific (or unscientific) girl


Getting girls into science is a big deal. I wrote an article about this in ParentMap after a great study was published by the AAUW (American Association of University Women). One of the biggest factors they talked about was having role models for girls in science–that girls didn’t see themselves in the typical movie scientist (think old guy with white hair). So maybe reading Ivy and Bean is all they need! If you think so, and want a chance for your own daughter or student, just comment below!

  1. As a 4th to 6th grade science teacher and former scientist (and a mom of two girls) it is so important to help young girls see science as FUN! That is always a goal of mine in my lessons and labs. Ivy & Bean are a great inspiration.

  8. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
