An all-girls engineering class
Women make up only 14 percent of engineers, and the lack of female engineers in the field has been a topic of much discussion and concern. Morristown High School in Morristown, New Jersey has been experiencing this problem firsthand. The school offers a number of engineering courses, including a Principles of Engineering class, as part of Project Lead the Way. Mariel Kolker, an experienced teacher and engineer, found the number of girls in her classes dwindling from 6 one year to two the next and finally, she taught a class with just one girl.
