A few good women are helping to see that girls get the same opportunities as boys when it comes to math, science, and technology.
The women, recipients of this year's Eleanor Roosevelt Teacher Fellowships, offered since 1989 through the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Educational Foundation, recently completed the foundation's annual five-day Teacher Institute in Washington, D.C.
The goal of the fellowship program is to help narrow the gender gap in math, science, and technology achievement that exists in today's public schools.
Fellowships are available to women teachers in grades K-12. Teachers can apply individually or as lead members of teams
