A new YouTube series FabLab is bringing science to young women in a fun and exciting way and get them more interested in fields like technology, engineering and math.

According to the National Science Board, only 27 percent of people working in the S.T.E.M. field are women.

Hosts of FabLab Nick Uhas and Alison Collard talk about why the percentage is so low and how to get more women interested in these fields.
