GoldieBlox: A Toy To Inspire Young Girls To Become Engineers

After being a part of a male-dominated engineering program, Stanford alum Debbie Sterling founded GoldieBlox, Inc. to create a toy that would inspire young girls to be more interested in math and science. After much research, she concluded that combining reading with a construction toy would make the toy more attractive to young girls. The production of the toy was funded on Kickstarter within five days, and now Sterling is writing the next few books in her series.
