Building Toys for Girls 

Roominate, the DIY wired dollhouse building kit, was designed by two female engineers (Alice and Bettina) who wish they would have seen more girls in their upper level Math and Science classes. They believe that early exposure through toys will motivate the next generation of female technology innovators.

The original Roominate includes walls, furniture building pieces, connectors, decorations, and a complete circuit. You can arrange, decorate, design, or create anything you can imagine.

They designed Roominate to get young girls to have fun and gain confidence with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

What can you create with Roominate?
The possibilities are endless! Here are a few ideas for inspiration:
Isn’t this amazing?!
I wish I would have had something like this when I was growing up!
Now you can even subscribe and get a new circuit, more building pieces, and more decorations each month to add to your Roominate. Awesome!
A University of Michigan study that was researching the gender gap in the area of Math and Science found that although girls and boys score equally on Math and Science ability tests that girls are still underrepresented in Science, technology, math, and engineering careers.  One contributor is that parents tend to buy more Math and Science toys and activities for their boys rather than their girls.
I’m so excited about this company and this product! I LOVE that Roominate is inspiring and encouraging young girls to get involved in Math and Science.
