GoldieBlox: The Engineering Toy for Girls
I just learned about this great Kickstarter project! Debbie Sterling, an engineer, wanted to create a toy that would build spatial skills & an interest in building & engineering in girls. Rather than just "make a building set pink," she looked at the research that showed girls overall have strong language & reading skills, and created a narrative-based building toy.
What kinds of storytelling/building programs we could offer at our libraries in conjunction with all of our Lego Clubs?
