Goldie Blox and The Dunk Tank In GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank, Goldie has to find a way to get Nacho clean. The only problem is: N...acho hates water and loves being a dirty dog. After many tries to get Nacho clean, Goldie finally comes up with the perfect contraption. As kids read along, they help Goldie build a dunk tank (and learn about hinges and levers) to get Nacho clean so everyone can go to the carnival on time. GoldieBlox is a toy company out to inspire the next generation of female engineers. Construction toys help kids develop spatial skills and get them interested in math and science. For decades its been a boys club...until now. GoldieBlox is an interactive books + construction toys starring Goldie, a kid inventor who solves problems by building simple machines. Girls are losing interest in math and science as young as age 8. Take a walk through a toy store and you can begin to see why; the blue aisle is filled with construction toys and chemistry sets, while the pink aisle is filled with princesses and dolls. Research shows that the earlier kids get interested in math and science, the more likely they are to go into those fields as adults. Its time we gave girls more options. GoldieBlox is a series of interactive books + construction toys starring Goldie, a curious girl with a love of engineering. Goldies stories encourage girls to build, developing the spatial skills that are fundamental to engineering. While the story unfolds, girls get to build what Goldie builds. The effectiveness of GoldieBlox isnt based on assumption. We spent a year researching gender differences, talking with Harvard neuroscientists, and observing childrens play patterns. GoldieBlox stories leverage girls advanced verbal skills to help develop and build self-confidence in their spatial skills. So why are female engineers important? As it stands, only 11% of engineers in the US are women, even though engineering and tech are two of the fastest growing fields in job creation. Most importantly, engineers are literally the builders and designers of our world; from the products we use, to the way we communicate, to the cities we inhabit. Gender equality in these fields will provide the balance and innovation that we all need to thrive; the female perspective is indeed a valuable one. GoldieBlox will nurture a generation of girls who are more confident, courageous and tech-savvy, giving them a real opportunity to contribute to the progress made by engineers in our society. Its 2013. Its about time we opened our girls minds beyond the pink aisle. The effectiveness of GoldieBlox isnt based on assumption We spent a year researching gender differences, talking with Harvard neuroscientists, and observing childrens play patterns. GoldieBlox stories leverage girls advanced verbal skills to help develop and build self-confidence in their spatial skills. Its time to build a new story so our girls can help build our future GoldieBlox will nurture a generation of girls who are more confident, courageous and tech-savvy, giving them a real opportunity to contribute to the progress made by engineers in our society.
