          Abstract

          In this paper we present Gender by Numbers, a physical and virtual prototype that exhibits the gender imbalances in the pursuit of future careers. Our system collects and measures relationships between courses and gender retrieved from university statistical data. Our goal is to explore how high school students can be nudged towards gender consciousness and be aware of the gender imbalance of a course before applying to the university.

          National differences in gender-science stereotypes predict national sex differences in science and math achievement.

          About 70% of more than half a million Implicit Association Tests completed by citizens of 34 countries revealed expected implicit stereotypes associating science with males more than with females. We discovered that nation-level implicit stereotypes predicted nation-level sex differences in 8th-grade science and mathematics achievement. Self-reported stereotypes did not provide additional predictive validity of the achievement gap. We suggest that implicit stereotypes and sex differences in science participation and performance are mutually reinforcing, contributing to the persistent gender gap in science engagement.
