How to Parody Promoting Science to Women

Remember the "Science: It's a Girl Thing" video that I posted a few months ago? Lots of pink, lipstick, dancing, and sexism smeared all over the place. I think we all agree that that was not the best way to go about getting girls interested in science. It really was only a matter of time until a parody was made of it. A group of psychologists from Bristol decided to see what they could do with it. I think they succeeded.


To be fair, the European Commission is trying to promote science to girls, and that definitely needs to be done. Perhaps they didn't succeed in the way they thought they might. But I still recommend that you check out their site anyway:  http://science-girl-thing.eu/en/splash
