dc.description.abstract Strengthening equitable gender access to and success in science and technology courses is an essential prerequisite for Kenya’s economy. The country’s potential for development in agriculture, health and industry is going to depend on a cadre of scientists and technologists from the polytechnics for their services. This study focused on the challenges of access into Kenya national polytechnics. The findings indicate that fewer female students than male students accessed science and technology courses and that the common factor which affected their access was lack of sufficient funds for training. Despite the disparity in access, they were at parity in performance. en_US
