This exhibit explores how inequality of girls education impacts society. By researching girls education in three different countries (including the U.S.) , students were able to draw several conclusions:
Fewer maternal death and reduced mortality rate for children under 5 years old.
Delayed marriage and better parenting skills.
Improved literacy skills leading to greater economic opportunities
More skills and knowledge enhancing women’s self-esteem and the well-being of families.
These students created a multi-faceted exhibit to demonstrate gender stereotypes and the male/female pay gap: A roleplaying game depicting gender stereotypes such as the different prices in consumer goods and the pay gap, and selling T-shirts based on the average male/female pay scale.
After making the connections between the tech industry in the Bay Area and the rapid displacement of low income community members and increase in homelessness. These students wanted to help those negatively affected by the tech sector with technology. They created a website to showcase an app they would like to develop and offer to those who find themselves unable to take care of their basic human needs.
