Why do girls excel at maths when they’re younger but lose interest when they’re older? The info-graphic below shows how girls drop out of science subjects more and more as they get older. And it doesn’t stop when they leave college – in fact it keeps getting worse. Even if a woman graduates with a really good degree in science, the likelihood that she’ll still be working in scientific field by the time she retires is tiny. There have been innumerable studies looking into this over the years, but none so far have managed to solve the problem.
