This best practices guide from FLATE, the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center of Excellence, offers strategies for engaging and retaining girls in STEM education from elementary school all the way through entry into the workforce. The 28 page guide begins by describing the challenges and barriers girls and women face in both STEM education and the STEM workforce before outlining strategies to combat these issues. The guide includes information on improving girls' exposure to positive images of STEM topics and careers, effective instructional techniques and curricula for improving retention, and providing career counseling to girls. It also offers an "In-a-Nutshell" summary of these practices as well as a bibliography for further investigation of the topic.
