An stem is missing in STEM

Yes, Dear Friends, you heard right. According to a research conducted by Institute for Women's and Policy Research (IWPR), participation of females in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is still significantly low. They are underrepresented in Career and Technical Education (CTE), specially in the areas which are male dominated since ages. The IWPR is a research institute based in Washington DC, United States; the institute was founded in 1987 for conducting research on women issues to take care for the needs of women and encourages people to promote female participation in all walks of life.

The IWPR is one of the leading think tank in United States which works around women issues. Though conditions varies and some US States are better than others. The finding raises my eyebrows on thought of, if this is the real condition of women in United States of America, a developed nation then how much pathetic it could be imagined for developing nations in Asia, Africa and other geographies.

The research findings of IWPR (Education Data Shows Gender Gap in Career Preparation) can be downloaded from official website; click here to download.

Women are integral part of our society; roughly it can be said they makes significant half of the world's human population. Despite they have shown tremendous courage in all walks of life; the world history is witness to it, what is wrong behind social thinking that we push male ahead and our other significant counterparts are pushed behind in the race. Despite we claim that we are socially civilized, we are able to fly a flag on mars, we have won over diseases like cancer, where we are lacking and why we are shying in asking equal participation of our female members of society.

I have personally nothing against any male and female member of any community, i have equal sympathies with everyone who maters to me and who not. This article weblog is for publishing career articles and i personally feel such findings are relevant to this website to encourage the people to put female members in same race track where males are asked to run.

Our society needs expertise, in fact best expertise in all fields, be it science, engineering, cookery, teaching, defence, health care or any other walk of life. Though government in India has many programs to encourage and help women but all such programs are not going to help in real terms till women / female child will not be given same treatment at our homes as we gave to male child.

In most of the social settings there exists dual norms, gender based when it matters to education specially and this is true, biter truth in fact with America also. However, we must need to understand the fact that best brains performs better jobs and not genders. We need to send our girls in same school where our boys goes. We need to send our girls in same sports club where our boys practice, and we need to take care for our female innocents till adolescents in same way as we care for our male child. So that our girls may compete with their male counterparts on similar platform and world may become more beautiful to live, love and laugh! We need stronger stems...  

Google Science Fair 2016

Science makes the world better? Galileo invented telescope and we can see things far away in the space near us. Thomas Jefferson invented light bulb and now we use LEDs. Abdul Kalam worked on missiles and now India is self reliant in the fields of military technology. Larry Page and Sergey Brin innovated Google and now internet is a possibility even in Sahara Desert.

Inventions lead to innovations and inventions does not happen without challenges. Children need to be exposed to challenges and risks from early childhood. Of course risk should NOT be life threatening or harmful to children in any manner. Curious minds learn through challenges and children are better curious.
