The speaker was great! Very informative. I've been to other talks on this subject and this talk finally made me realize how important men can be to try to get girls in STEM. That there are opportunities to teach and show men (and women) on how to better gauge a girls interest and how to help girls gain confidence and even teaching strategies that may be beneficial. .
This was an excellent presentation. The content was very interesting, and I would be surprised if everyone in the room didn't walk away without something of interest they could use in their lives. I loved the fact that Dean Letendre invited two students to co-present. The visuals also were very good--for once, I could actually see the numbers, graphic images, etc.--probably because the PP slides were carefully prepared with the audience in mind. Simple, clear graphics, and succinct text. I really enjoyed the whole presentation.
