    Look at some gender studies about the cultural differences between teenage girls and boys. There's a widely-held belief that girls mature faster than boys, so does this have an impact on the amount of effort they are likely to put into their studies? Does school work have more of an impact on boys' social lives than girls'? Is it considerably less cool for a boy to want to do well in his studies?

    You could conduct a survey to determine different attitudes towards work among boys and girls at different ages, and see what it tells you. I'm sure people in your school have done similar projects before, so if you ask your teachers they will probably be able to show you projects from previous years.

    ...Or perhaps boys are just thick.
