With our society progressively dependent on technology and STEM literacy, closing the dramatic gender divide within STEM areas becomes even more essential. Microsoft's latest research discovered that girls and young females tend to lose interest in STEM areas as they age. The interest falls considerably as soon as they complete high school. 57 percent of girls believed that engineering was more for boys when questioned, although countless surveys discovered no important gender differences in engineering aptitude. That implies the stereotypes need to be broken! The latest growth of ICTs in various industries has brought many changes. Higher learning institutions are experiencing several useful modifications. ICTs have provided the key tasks of teaching, outreach, research and consultancy with efficiency, effectiveness and efficiency. Previous studies have shown that while there is improvement in teaching and learning through e-learning, few studies have studied e-learning as an instrument to promote the participation of female learners in the fields of science, technology and mathematics. The aim of this qualitative research is to determine how high schools through e-learning technology can best prepare and encourage young females to work in STEM subjects. In this regard, this research seeks to determine whether e-learning could be an effective resource for self-learning for girls in secondary schools to improve performance in Mathematics and other STEM subjects.
