Research has consistently demonstrated that girls are not encouraged as often or to the extent of boys in scientific and mathematic endeavors. Recently, that trend has begun to change as more girls are becoming engaged in these sorts of activities; and, this product is a great resource for any parents trying to get their children excited about science. The Nancy B's Science Club features women in science and introduces children to the important work that they are doing. Boys and girls alike can benefit from the scientific concepts introduced and honed by this product including creating and evaluating the validity of their hypotheses.
