Just found out about a new toy and book series being manufactured, GoldieBlox. GoldieBlox was invented by Debbie Stirling, a Stanford-educated engineer. GoldieBlox, is a toy and book series designed to get young girls interested in engineering. With science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education on the forefront of reforming education there are more toys, games, and books being manufactured with a STEM theme. I’m looking forward to testing out GoldieBlox during future STEM teacher training workshops I conduct. To pre-order your GoldieBlox go to http://www.goldiblox.com . To find out about Debbie, the evolution of GoldieBlox, and watch a cool video check out the following link.
