Although the world of science and engineering is an endless
realm that holds nearly all of the keys to the mysteries of the universe, it is
still a field that is largely dominated by males, from the beginning of youth
through the end of higher education. And while school programs and teaching approaches
across the nation have been formulated to draw in a large crowd of girls to this
arena, these attempts have still fallen short of creating an equal field for
members of both genders.
This February though, we all have a chance to open up the
doors to engineering for girls around the nation. And if you want your little
girl to uncover the secrets held by math and science, spend ‘Introduce a Girl
to Engineering Day’ using these fun new kids toys to help your daughter excel.
Build a Room from the
If your child loves to play with colorful toys, and is
excited about the prospect of creating an entire new playhouse from scratch,
then you should make sure they have the Basic Roominate when this
special day finally arrives. This wonderful construction toy for girls lets
your daughter develop her STEM skills by putting together a variety of
different colorful pieces to create a room of her own.
The fun doesn’t stop there, though: once the structure is
erected, your daughter can use the basic wiring and circuit tools in this fun
girls building toy to connect the functions to a power switch, setting in
motion a fan, an elevator, a merry-go-round, or even a plane propeller.
This brilliant engineering toy can open your daughter’s eyes
to a whole new world of science!
Read Along with an
Of course, there is a chance that your daughter may love reading
books much more than she enjoys playing with girls building toys. But if that
is the case with your little girl, don’t stop trying to develop her STEM skills
– instead, bring her home the GoldieBlox and the Parade Float construction
toy for girls to give her the best of both worlds.
This fun and interactive girls building toy comes with a set
of pieces that your daughter must put together into a working float using her
spatial and critical analysis skills.
This creative engineering toy comes with more than just a
set of plastic pieces though. In fact, to help encourage your daughter to play
with this engineering toy, the makers included an educational children’s
storybook to accompany the activity. The kids’ book chronicles the adventures
of Ruby, Katinka, and Goldie, three friends that must put their heads together
to save the day. And while reading about their quest, your daughter can use her
own STEM skills to become the heroine of her own adventure at home.
Daughter to Engineering This February
The world of math, science,
and engineering is a monumental universe that needs brilliant minds to uncover
