some people think STEM is really boring.  but that’s because they are learning by reading about STEM. STEM is an action sport.  it’s about doing.  you’ve got to get in there and play. 

that’s why the new web diy series ‘Hack along with Goldie Blox’  is so great. Every Friday a new episode is gonna come out with fun fixes that any girl with a can do attitude can make themselves.

did you know that only 1 out of 10 engineers are women?  

doesn’t make sense since women/girls are 1/2 of the population.

probably cause most girls have no idea what an engineer does…

that’s where goldieblox comes in.  

inventor/ceo of goldieblox, debbie sterling, created a really neat toy that girls can play with to bring out there inner-gineer.  

want to see more? they have a cool online tool.  check it out:
