Toys That Help Turn Little Girls Into Engineers
A new game encourages young kids to incorporate building, wiring and technology into their traditional playtime.
Traditional, gender-biased children’s toys have usually allocated technology-minded toys–like building sets and chemistry kits–to boys. More domesticated concepts of home-making and cooking are encouraged in girls’ playtime. However, a lack of female-presence in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math has caused concern, so much so that financial scholarships are now offered to women who study in STEM fields.
