This video really spoke to me.  How often do people complement little girls, even toddler girls, on their pretty dress, their cute haircut, their beautiful eyes?  But how often do we complement little girls on their brains!?  Their curiosity?  Their desire to explore nature?

How do you encourage girls to get excited about science in your classroom?
