The girls at Ballenas Secondary School in Parksville, British Columbia, where Laurie Mitchell teaches, are doing better in science and mathematics than are the boys. Ms. Mitchell gets girls involved in such projects as the Ms. Infinity Conference, which brings together girls in grades 8 through 10 to promote careers in math, science and technology and the Girls in Science program, which gives girls ages 9 to 12 a hands-on technology learning experience.
