Parents and guardians play a major role in driving their children’s interest in science, technology, math or engineering (STEM). Two-thirds of the girls who report having an interest in STEM had a parent or guardian who encouraged these interests, according to the Scientific American. Parents can encourage these early interests by engaging their children in age appropriate STEM activities. These resources provide a good starting place.
