What is the best way to attract girls and young women to science?  Scientists have been discussing this for DECADES and now there are two videos that offer opposing images of how to best "reach out" to them.
I'm presenting them here. Please have a look, and please comment.
First one is made by scientists at the BarberLab

The second one is produced by the European Commission.
