Welcome to STEM Girls: Resources to Interest Girls in STEM

(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Careers

– An Annotated Bibliography



This project, supported by a 2008 Carnegie-Whitney grant from the American Library Association, provides a list of items that have the potential to attract girls into science-based careers. Despite efforts over the years, the number of women in STEM careers is still sadly disproportionate to the overall numbers of people in the fields. It is my hope that this site will be used by girls, teachers, counselors, and parents to find and use resources to interest girls in considering STEM careers.


Through the grant, I was able to hire students to provide annotations for a number of resources. For the project to be successful, we need more items added. Please create a pbwiki account and add resources and annotations. I ask only that you do not modify items that are currently listed.
