Diversity in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields is lacking (read post), but why? Where does the gap start? The founder of GoldieBlox says it's in early childhood for women. Girls are encouraged to play with dolls and anything pink and not construction toys that make you think. Construction toys get kids interested in math and science and help them develop spacial skills. But these toys are marketed towards boys and not girls. But girls do want to be more than just princesses and they want to like science and math, watch the video below.
