WE WANT TO
girls to develop
into our world's problem solvers.
Women make up
only 14% of Engineers
in the United States
Girls lose interest in
Misconception of What Engineering Really Is
Fewer Technical Problems During K to 12 than Boys
Lack of Female Engineer Role Models
Think Like a Girl offers kits for girls ages 6 to 12 that teach important skills through activities based on what girls typically enjoy and how they learn best. Each kit features a hands-on activity, an illustrated short story booklet, and several other components. Everything taught relates to actual engineering technologies and the real world. We are currently in the development and testing phase of our product.
We do not just want to create a product or a toy, which girls will grow out of. The reality is that girls need mentors and communities to guide and inspire them to pursue technical careers. This is why we aim to implement three phases into our business.
