Why do girls need science to be sparkly in order to find it interesting?

Is science different for men than women? Do women perceive scientifical concepts differently, or is our understanding of science any less?
No. Period.
NO!
The laws of science apply whatever your gender, religion, age or race. So why is it we keep seeing things like this?

"Science with a sparkle". Why do they think girls need science to be sparkly in order to find it interesting? And why shouldn't the boys be allowed sparkly science?

When I was a kid, I used to love chemistry sets (like this one) and electronics sets (like this one). I didn't need sparkles. Sparkles has no role in explaining how our world works, how research can give you the most amazing answers and how technology is making things we've previously only imagined possible.

Our first step of attracting young girls to the fields of science is by giving them the same education as the boys. Let them play and explore science together and that's when we'll start seeing sparkles!
