Think Like a Girl: Engineering Activity Kits
"Think Like a Girl" are engineering activity kits specifically crafted to encourage girls to pursue an interest in engineering. Although we feel STEM products shouldn't be defined as "for boys or girls", we like the focus on learning about female engineering role models. The kits look fun and engaging... even for boys!
The creators of Think Like a Girl are all female engineers, recognising the gender gap in STEM related careers, hope to help balance the scales. The subscription kits are designed for ages 6 - 12+ and provide a range of activities and information on real engineering applications and important female role models. We really like the idea of sustainable fact cards to help kids learn about sustainable technologies and how they work.
Think Like a Girl is now on Kickstarter.
