Get more girls into science thanks to the Gender4STEM platform

“Girls are not talented at science”,

“Science is for geeks and thus not for girls”…

These are some of the persistent gender stereotypes in science education. We want to tackle this issues and therefore, we have developed the Gender4STEM Teaching Assistant.

Welcome to the Gender4STEM Teaching Assistant!

Our platform is primarily for teachers, but is also relevant for school psychologists and counsellors, career guidance advisors, head teachers…

It provides teaching materials to support you in stepping up gender fair teaching practices into your classrooms.

First, we recommend using the self-assessment tool to find out how gender fair your teaching is and access personalized recommendations of materials. Then, browse through and experiment with them to find ways to make girls more interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Thanks to our platform, you are fully equipped and it’s now up to you to get girls excited about STEM!


The Gender4STEM Teaching Assistant has been developed as part of the  co-funded Erasmus+ project Gender4STEM, which brings together six European partners.
