I took about six AP classes and tests. None were science related.... No that's a lie.... I took AP Bio. I got that little certificate you get when you take a certain number of tests and get 4s and up.

My dh and I payed for his niece to take one test.

Not that surprising. Most IT related jobs don't require computer science degrees with the right certifications and experience.

I did not pass the Art test lol. Which is okay because if I did I probably would have stupidly minored in something art related.

Never cared to take the AP Physics test, I got a B+ in that class

Hardcore sciences never really interested me

I do wish I went to a Science and Technology high school though

I was in a program for math and science at one of the top high schools in America (ranked #4 nationally and #1 in the state) and had the opportunity to enroll there but chose not to because I wanted to go to school with my friends.....
Yeah. Similar situation. I passed on going to a IB High school to stay with friends.

I left an IB school to go be with friends.
I hated that school.

I took AP and honors classes. They put me in a cisco course... ditched with other AP kids. Dumbest thing I did.

This is purely anecdotal so take it as such: But I have a huge problem with people in the STEM field, or STEM majors. Its been my observation that these white, asian and indian men think they're the sh*t because they can do a little math or a little coding and they start to get a very elitist attitude. And It's been my experience that they tend to discourage women and minorities from entering in this field because it weakens it to them. Like they all of a sudden wouldn't be special anymore. And I feel most people in society have an implicit attitude that minorities and women can't handle the work and therefore we are discouraged from going the STEM route at a young age. And then when we do decide to enter into the STEM world we're discriminated against: We aren't offered funding for our research, we're paid less, we're subject to workplace harassment, we're not invited to the study groups, etc. 




great point 

I will never forget hearing teachers tell female students that "it is ok you're not good at math - you're just a girl." The irony was that many of these teachers were female.

Our society still has many stereotypes and narrow minded, ignorant views on women and what we are capable of; and I think these stereotypes and prejudices have a lot to do with the lack of females majoring in these fields. 

I mean, I think there are other factors that contribute to the issue (i.e. our priorities - unfortunately education is not a priority for many kids today) 

eta: I think it'll be a great idea to start brainstorming initiatives to encourage not only females, but female minorities, to enter these fields. I do know women who professionals in the STEM field, but not many are AA - majority are all females from Southeast Asia (India, Pakistan, etc)
