This is Your Brain on Engineering via (GoldieBlox Easter PSA) | Manufacturing | Scoop.it

This Easter, we wanted to highlight some of the reasons more choices for girls are so important. Why stay on a conveyor belt when you can build your own Ferris wheel, after all?

We're GoldieBlox, a toy company out to show the world that girls deserve more choices than dolls and princesses. We believe that femininity is strong and girls will build the future — literally.

Our founder, Debbie Sterling, is a Stanford engineer who decided that girls need more choices than the pink aisle has to offer. She developed GoldieBlox, an interactive book series + construction set starring Goldie, the kid inventor who loves to build.

For Lakeview students, shop class is more than building gun racks | Manufacturing | Scoop.it
LAKEVIEW — Say the words “shop class” and certain images come to mind, not all of them flattering — kids gluing inexpertly-cut bits of wood together to form end tables of questionable stability or uninspired students counting the minutes until the 3 p.m. bell.

There’s an altogether different picture being painted in Dave Albert’s woodworking shop at Lakeview …
