20% of girls were not interested in a STEM-related career (other). Medical careers were of predominant interest before the program (64%).
As girls' understanding of the applications of STEM, and their confidence increased, more were inclined towards careers in engineering (2% to 12%) and science (4% to 6%). Interestingly, girls were also interested in becoming accountants and bank managers, which needs maths. Interest in being a teacher also grew, a testament to the power of our teachers in modeling effective instruction, and in inspiring learning.
