The Power of Physical Science is a National Science Foundation MSP-Start program designed to investigate ways to encourage middle and high school girls to study physics and geological science. Five neighboring rural school districts in Livingston County, New York are K-12 partners on this project. Discovering successful strategies for encouraging young women to study these areas is the first step in addressing the problem of under representation of women in these disciplines. The POPS team has developed a hands-on enrichment curriculum focusing on the concept of energy that emphasizes the societal benefits of the physical sciences, because research indicates that ``helping others'' is an important consideration for girls in choosing a career. The K-12 partners were involved in testing a pilot study curriculum that introduced students to issues of energy and renewable and nonrenewable resources. Pre- and post-testing of students in intervention and control groups was used to determine the impact of this intervention on students' attitudes and self-efficacy as well as their mastery of the content.
