Girls in Physics
Girls are under-represented in physics post-16. In 2006 the Institute of Physics published the results of a review that sought to identify causes of this serious issue.
Following publication of the research findings, the Institute produced a teachers' guide and two video films that explored ways in which schools could encourage girls to study physics post-16.
Several research reports exploring causes of girls' under-representation in physics, and suggesting possible approaches to tackling this issue.
'Girls in the Physics Classroom: Review of Research on Girls'...
Several publications for teachers that draw from the findings of research into strategies to increase girls' participation in physics post-16.
