Stanford graduate develops 'Goldieblox,' a game to inspire future female engineers.

Traditionally in gender-biased kids’ toys, fashion and design are steered towards girls, whereas science and mechanics are targeted at boys. As they grow older, most girls have no interest in pursuing a career in science, technology, and engineering, due to the lack of exposure in these fields.

Debbie Sterling, a Stanford engineer, plans to tackle this problem by creating the GoldieBlox. The children’s toy hopes to “inspire girls the way Legos and Erector sets have inspired boys.”
