Why do girls avoid science??

Girls avoiding science classes

When girls are asked on what subjects they avoid, the typical answer is science and mathematics. However, there is one way of helping girls to become more interest in these two subjects: self-confidence. The self-confidence instilled by parents and teachers is considered to be more important for young girls learning math and science than their initial interest. As their self-confidence grows, so does their interest in science and mathematics. Teachers need to give the girls positive experiences with the two subjects in order for them to feel that they can succeed.
