The beauty and the nerd

The other day I've been talking with my daugther. Why are there much more men studying an exact, beta, science (physics, mathematics, engineering ...) than girls - at least, in The Netherlands? I tried to use the Lucifer Principle ("Bad boys always get the best girls"): is it because boys are more competitive? No, that's why computer games are more popular with boys than with girls. Is it because boys are smarter, more intelligent? I think not: usually girls tend to be more logical. Any suggestions?
