Abstract

The writers outline strategies that aim to encourage female students to participate in science. Those involved in science must actively encourage young women's participation and higher cognitive development through constructive inclusive learning environments while promoting positive self-efficacy. This encouragement must start at the earliest grades because female students' decision to major in science for their postsecondary education is influenced by their experience many years before.
