How much of a difference can spatial reasoning assessment and training make for female STEM students? At Michigan Tech 80% of female engineering students that received the training were retained compared to 50% of women with weak spatial skills who did not receive any training. This three-page research brief highlights the key research supporting the use of spatial reasoning training as an intervention for increasing the retention of female STEM students.
