A research program was proposed to the National Science Foundation to determine how gender affected the learning of and interest in technical topics. It was desired to find a consumer product that was of high interest to girls and one that was of high interest to boys, but neither product should be of high interest to the opposite gendered child. A survey was designed to determine what items were of interest to children in the third and sixth grades.
