This girls-only class incorporates GoldieBlox, an award winning book series and construction set starring Goldie the girl inventor, developed by Stanford-degreed Mechanical Engineer, Debbie Sterling. GoldieBlox taps into girls’ strong verbal skills and uses a story based construction set to explore concepts such as the wheel and axel, belt drive, the hinge and other engineering concepts all while building spacial skills and confidence in problem solving. True to Newton’s Attic, we will expand on the program by teaching basic tool use and further developing the engineering skills by having the girls build projects in the shop that reinforce the concepts in the construction sets. The girls may keep the projects they build in the Newton’s Attic shop.
