With the somewhat tempestuous history of women in STEM, it’s important to support those who are making a difference, making the world a better and more equal place. One of those groups intent on helping girls nurture an interest in engineering and building is the company GoldieBlox. GoldieBlox’s CEO, Debbie Sterling, was one of the few women in her engineering program at Stanford and wanted to encourage more girls to act on their love of STEM. So she started GoldieBlox, which is intent on providing young girls with projects they will enjoy and can engineer and make by themselves.
If you’re interested in helping more girls and women become involved in STEM, here are a few more helpful resources:
There are definitely even more resources beyond the ones I’ve listed. It’s easy to get involved and make a difference!
