NCompass Live: Using YA Literature to Inspire Teen Girls' Interests in STEM - Recorded Online Session 

Description

If Hunger Games can inspire young women to take up the bow and arrow, then surely other young adult (YA) titles can inspire enthusiasm for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). This program will discuss the role of YA fiction in teen development and specific YA titles to encourage STEM interests with teen girls.

Presenter: Dr. Melissa Cast-Brede, Department of Teacher Education, College of Education, University of Nebraska Omaha.
