  • Science and Cooking http://m.thetech.org/about-us/media-room/photography-modernist-cuisine-exhibition-comes-tech At yesterday's lunch, one of our guests expressed his concern that girls did not seem as interested in STEM-related projects, such as his computer robotics project. My thought is to *change your theme* - for example, to cooking, to the science of cooking - add in some healthy competition among teams (think, food reality shows, chef competitions) and you could have a winning formula. (I do not remember the author's name but we used to have a wonderful column in The Washington Post on The Science of Cooking and I think that the writer may have published a book or two.) Observation submitted by Susan Anthony, USPTO.
