Girls in Physics - Improving Gender Balance

For more than 25 years, only around 20% of students progressing on to A-level physics have been girls, despite about equal success between the genders in GCSE physics and science. The comparatively low numbers of girls progressing to A-level and beyond suggests that, in many cases, girls are having a less positive experience than boys. Social and cultural influences may also discourage girls from continuing with physics.

In this course, we'll explore reports investigating the situation, and looks at a suite of resources that teachers can use to improve gender balance, ensuring that all students have a positive experience of physics.

You'll consider teaching approaches that encourage girls to continue with the subject and identify stereotypes that discourage girls from choosing rewarding career pathways.
