  • INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY 

            It is an acceptable truth that no society can reach heights of greatness unless there is an ample supply of dedicated men and women in all field critical to its growth and development Uyaga (1999) noted that the contribution of female to nation building is significantly dependent on their manipulation ability and skills acquired though formal  or nor formal education. Women’s contribution to wards Nigeria’s greatness is hereby emphasized inline with the tenets of the vision 2010,.

Considering the fact that the education of females in Africa is attracting global attention in recent time some female are barred from acquiring formal education and in situation where they are allowed to attend school, a good number of them are later withdraw for one reason or another before completing school, it is a well –know fact that many parents in Africa give preferential treatment to the male especially in matters concern education. It is really sad that up till now in some societies female are still living in the shadows denied education  and other right (Akponiro 2008).

  5. Despite these efforts, evident still abound concerning low participation of females in science and technology education

Some reasons advanced for such low participation are:

i           Certain task and job are traditionally associated with particular sexes.

ii          Student depend more on their parents advice (Jegede 1984)

iii         Males had more favourable attitude to wards integrated science than females         (Odubunmi and Balogun 1981).

iv         Most males tend to opt for all the basic science at school certificate level

With all these policy statements there is low participation of females in universities.
