New GoldieBlox & Giveaway!
The engineering pioneers at GoldieBlox have introduced an exciting new invention! GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank is a construction set and book combo which challenges kids to create a carnival dunk tank for a very dirty dog.
Last summer, I wrote about the first GoldieBlox, GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine, and got a lot of response from parents excited about a game aimed at inspiring girls to explore and develop a love of engineering. As it stands, only 13% of engineers in the US are women, even though engineering and tech are two of the fastest growing fields in job creation. Research shows that the earlier kids get interested in math and science, the more likely they are to go into those fields as adults.
While the dunk tank is for ages 4 and up, little ones will need some help following the steps and building the tank but they can easily venture off on their own. I found that after we built the tank, my kids became excited to dream up and construct their own inventions... a car... a bathtub... and were busy using their imaginations for a good part of the morning.
Want to try it for yourself or give one as a gift? The company has given me the newest GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank to gift one lucky reader. Just enter the contest below before April 25th. The winner will be chosen at random.
