GoldieBlox: Helping to Inspire the Next Generation of Female Engineers
One video which is currently going viral, in a major way, is actually a two-minute commercial for a very cool, very young toy company called GoldieBlox.
Founded in 2012 by a Stanford educated engineer and entrepreneur named Debbie Sterling (PeekYou profile here), GoldieBlox’s mission statement begins this way: “At GoldieBlox, our goal is to get girls building. We’re here to help level the playing field in every sense of the phrase. By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, our story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.”
With this in mind, the video above is not only wildly entertaining, but honestly a fair bit inspiring. Check it out, and check out Debbie’s PeekYou profile, where you’ll be led to all sorts of GoldieBlox related links, videos, social pages, articles, and more.
