"The Gender Chip Project." A look at women in science that follows five women majoring in the sciences, engineering and math at Ohio State University.Although women comprise the majority of undergraduates in America, only 20 percent are earning degrees in engineering and computer science.
The Gender Chip Project illustrates this challenge as it follows five women majoring in the sciences, engineering and math at Ohio State University. Meeting regularly throughout their four years of school, they create a community to share their experiences and struggles as women stepping into traditionally male domains, and find support in dialog with their female professors. Now chaptered for easier use, the DVD shows how these extraordinary students are finding their own way to navigate and succeed in these male-dominated areas of study.News release: http://news.uga.edu/releases/article/uga-to-celebrate-women-in-STEM-during-march/
