Geek chic: it’s cool to be the smart girl in school!

I just read a great article my mother in law sent me about how much negative stereotypes cost young women and our whole country: http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2008/10/10/making_math_uncool_is_hurting_america_report_says

Acting like math isn’t cool is robbing our country of great talent.  The stereotype that math is uncool deprives our daughters of successful futures and our entire country on all the talents their skills might have borne.

This is why programs like Girlstart are so important!  We give girls a safe place to be smart, to try, explore, and experiment.

Be smart!  Be proud!
