Description

GoldieBlox is a toy firm out to encourage the following technology of feminine engineers.

Construction toys help children increase spatial abilities and get them concerned with math and science. For decades its been a boy’s club…unless now. GoldieBlox is an interactive books + development toys starring Goldie, a child inventor who solves problems by way of building simple machines.

Inspiring the next generation of female engineers!

Gold is the new pink!

Ladies are losing passion in math and science as younger as age 8.

Take a stroll through a toy store and that you would be able to commence to look why; the “blue aisle” is full of construction toys and chemistry units, while the “red aisle” is stuffed with princesses and dolls. Analysis displays that the earlier kids get curious about math and science, the more possible they’re to go into those fields as adults.

It’s time we gave women extra choices.

GoldieBlox is a sequence of interactive books + construction toys starring Goldie, a curious lady with a love of engineering. Goldie’s tales inspire girls to build, developing the spatial skills which might be elementary to engineering. As she goes on adventures together with her pals, she comes throughout problems that she solves by using constructing simple machines. Whereas the story unfolds, women get to build what Goldie builds.

So why are female engineers vital?

Because it stands, most effective 11% of engineers in the U. S. are ladies, even supposing engineering and tech are two of the fastest growing fields in job creation.Most significantly, engineers are actually the builders and designers of our world; from the products we use, to the best way we be in contact, to the cities we inhabit. Gender equality in these fields will provide the steadiness and innovation that all of us wish to thrive; the female point of view is certainly a treasured one.

It’s time to build a brand new story so our women can lend a hand build our future.

GoldieBlox will nurture a technology of girls who’re extra confident, brave and tech-savvy, giving them an actual probability to make contributions to the development made via engineers in our society.

More pieces = more fun

The effectiveness of GoldieBlox isn’t based on assumption.

We spent a year researching gender differences, talking with Harvard neuroscientists, and watching children’s play patterns. GoldieBlox stories leverage girls’ advanced verbal talents to help develop and build self-confidence of their spatial abilities.
