Girls choosing camera lenses over microscopes: Over a third of teenage girls put off careers in science due to negative stereotypes, finds research group
In 2008, 506 girls ages 13 to 18 (apparently USA) gave the following career choices. More than one choice was allowed.
I heard about the survey via a blog post about a Gold Award girl scout in my area who designed a STEM kit for 4th and 5th graders in her school district.

I'm passing along this survey request from Anna Rodemund of the University of Hamburg regarding the reasons and motives of parents for homeschooling:
I am studying at the University of Hamburg teachers for primary and secondary education. At the moment i am writing my master thesis with the (not yet formulated) question "reasons and motives of parents for homeschooling - an international comparison". I also want to clarify that home education is a "good" alternative to regular school institution.
In this regard, I have prepared a questionnaire, I would like to send it to (as many as possible) families. From Switzerland and Germany I've received some completed questionnaires.
Unfortunately, I dont know US-home education-families. For this reason, I wanted to ask you if you would be willing eventually to complete the questionnaire or if you know families who have the time and inclination to answer the questions. Course name and the other information is not published!
Very happy the questionnaire can be sent / forwarded to other networks. I would be very grateful for your help and thank you ever heartily!
