Science: it’s a girl thing!
23 June 2012
Apparently I’m the very last person to become aware of this video, which was produced by the European Commission.
I don’t know what to say. Except the obvious: if I were commissioned to create a spoof video to encourage girls to enter STEM fields, this is exactly what I’d come up with.
So congratulations, European Commission, on creating the cleverest spoof ever! Sure makes the efforts of Jen and her compatriots to dismantle the “girls just aren’t good with science and math” myth look crazy serious, which is very unfeminine.
Also, I’d like to know exactly what that creepy blue makeup powder is supposed to be. Is that supposed to represent an achievement in scientific research by girls?
