Cool new toy for the young girls in your lives!

Saw this today, gotta share with my fellow techie engineer mechanically minded folk..

I fight every year to get more females enrolled in my classes, interested in technology and engineering. As logic dictates, the earlier you can hook someone or get them interested in something the more it becomes a part of their lives... So say NO to pounds of new (same old) pink junky toys for the little daughters, nieces, and friends in your lives.

Every girl that has this as a kid will be able to change their own serpentine belt as an adult

Very good post, Steve.

I involve my girl in truck tasks when possible. She's 9 years old and now has a basic idea of how axles work in the Rover.


Here's another interesting toy for girls, probably geared for a little older girls than the first post "GoldieBlox".

It's called Roominate.

Good question. My girls love them, typically focused on the pirates, castles, or Lord of the Rings. Then again, my kids may not be the most mainstream...

"Not mainstream" is often a good thing.

These might be a little less painful to step on maybe? That is one of the worst things ever. Legos are great but I always preferred Erector sets and by association, so did my little sister.

It's a good idea, i was/am always really good at building stuff and figuring out how stuff works, still never got me through my calc classes. Most Engineering students i knew, had no idea how to apply what they just drew/calculated, just my expierence.

I don't have any daughters. But this USC student sent me this pic today.
