Abstract

TechGirl is an exciting, dynamically evolving, interactive website dedicated to helping middle school girls learn about science and engineering. It is intended to help them develop an appreciation for the beneficial impact of science and engineering on society, and to encourage them to consider a possible career in science and engineering. The site contains three major parts: a role-playing game, a science/engineering knowledge game, and biographical sketches. A discussion of the site, initial assessment, and the initial impact on young women will be discussed in the paper.
