Project Exploration’s Sisters4Science: Involving Urban Girls of Color in Science Out of School

June 1st, 2010 | RESEARCH

This paper sketches the context for participation in science by girls from historically underrepresented populations and offers a detailed description of Sisters4Science (S4S) and its personalized, girl-centered pedagogy. The S4S example suggests a need to complement current out-of-school science programs with lessons from girl-centered practice and research.
