Originally I passed on this psych experiment out of the University of Colorado that claimed there was an easy way to boost the performance of female college students in courses such as physics and math. (As a reminder, I write about this on a boys blog because if women are going to dominate colleges we need a way to steer more women into economically critical majors).
But Slate does an interesting analysis. Could it hurt to try?
