Not a book, but a program for middle school girls which can be replicated
anywhere -- the girls are brought into a central setting (usually a
university) with teachers and parents; lots of hands-on activities, panels
about what it's like to be a woman scientist. And why not adapt it for
minority kids? It seems pretty adaptable.
