Verizon Wants You To Inspire Girls And Encourage Their Love Of Science And Technology

If you have a young daughter or a young sister, you need to watch this. It's only a commercial but it's a very powerful one. Many grade school girls admit to loving science and math. However, when they reach college level and decide on what courses to to take, very few of them chose science and math-related majors.

This commercial by Verizon drives the idea that part of the reason why very few females take up engineering in college is because people around them (family and friends) have unknowingly discouraged them. It is eye-opening.

80% of jobs in the coming decades will require technology skills. And Verizon is on a mission to encourage more girls to get involved with STEM subjects. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. For more information on the Verizon campaign, visit the campaign's page here.
