Girls Make Better Scientists Than Boys

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 02-06-2013

A recent study conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that girls are more likely to score higher on scientific aptitude tests than boys…just not in America. The New York Times reported that girls generally outperform boys in many parts of the world such as Russia, Asia and the Middle East. Yet western societies are more likely to produce male scientists as cultural norms dictate that boys are more likely to see science as “something that affects their lives” in those parts of the world than girls are.

I spend lots of time on academic campuses hanging out with real world scientists and I have not noticed this trend. Have you? What are your thoughts?
