Summer Educational Programs

Young Women's Summer Institute 2000

 Studies show that by the time many middle-school girls enter 9th grade, they've already lost interest in math and science. They turn to more "socially accepted" subjects like English and art. For many girls, math and science are just too boring, too hard, or too uncool. Besides, everybody knows that math and science are for boys, right?

Why Do 9th Grade Girls Lose Interest In Math and Science? OSC Has the Answer -- and the Solution!
