Quantifying Children’s Perceived Gender Roles and Attitudes Towards Women in Computing Science
This research aims to address the acute issue of the retention of female students in STEM domains. Specifically, this work proposes a three-year longitudinal study surveying the attitudes and beliefs of junior high-school students towards gender roles in computing science. This study will contribute to the understanding of how role models influence students’ attitudes towards computing science.
