Hurray for Goldieblox for knowing that girls want to think and invent and problem solve and that they don’t always want everything to be pink and princessy! The company was created by Debbie Sterling, a female engineer from Stanford University. I also like the way the girls own their own version of the Beastie Boys’ song, “Girls.”
Children will also enjoy Rosie Revere, Engineer. Rosie is named for her great-great Aunt Rose, of Rosie the Riveter fame.
