Abstract

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.
