Over the past four years, the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and Fox Valley Technical College have witnessed a 56% increase in the numbers of women seeking related degrees in science, technology, engineering and math. In addition, female student enrollment at the two schools combined grew by 23% during that same span. "Women are more likely to think about science if their parents encourage them and their high school teachers encourage them. That will get them to sign up for a class their freshman year (of college)," said Jennifer Mihalick, a UWO chemistry professor and director of Women in Science.
