Engineering for Girls

UPDATE: We had published a link in this article to the GoldiBlox video promoting their range of engineering toys for girls. However, in a twist more relevant to our media stream, the video has been taken down as it used music from US band Beastie Boys for which permission had not been sought or given. Oops!

The lesson here is, NEVER put anything online or use any media assets in public that you don't 100% have the rights to use.

Further details on the story on Rolling Stone online.

There are a few 'making of' videos which show behind the scenes footage and more details on how some of the contraptions are put together;

 

And here's the launch video that gives a bit of background on what it's all about;
