Can girls be engineers, or scientists? Kari Byron's book goes into her life before, during and after Mythbusters where she was a Crash Test Girl. She explains what its like being a female in a field of science and engineering and how she works to get more girls interested younger.
While reading this, I thought about my niece and other kids growing up where their parents and the adults around them provide direction. How engineering, science, math and technology are not always the top of mind.
