You should probably watch the greatest advertisement ever.
Fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 actual engineers are women. Early in a girl’s life, the toys marketed to her are usually things that don’t encourage her to enter those fields. GoldieBlox intends to change that by teaching them while they are young that these fields can be fun — and apparently epic, by the looks of this super-genius 2-minute video. Watch and learn.
If you like what GoldieBlox is doing to innovate for girls’ toys, you could Like them on Facebook. And if you want to see them win a chance at airing their commercial in the Super Bowl (instead of seeing another creepy GoDaddy ad),you could vote here. (via upworthy)
Girls. You think you know what we want, girls. Pink and pretty it’s girls. Just like the 50’s it’s girls.
You like to buy us pink toys and everything else is for boys and you can always get us dolls and we’ll grow up like them… false.
It’s time to change. We deserve to see a range. 'Cause all our toys look just the same and we would like to use our brains.
We are all more than princess maids.
Girls to build the spaceship, Girls to code the new app, Girls to grow up knowing they can engineer that.
Girls. That’s all we really need is Girls. To bring us up to speed it’s Girls. Our opportunity is Girls. Don’t underestimate Girls.
We made you a Doctor Who Global Celebration Digital Party Pack! Download it here!
As you may have noticed, we’ve been sending out Doctor Who 50th “party packs” to a few lucky Whovians who have posted their Doctor Who 50th Anniversary party plans to the #Doctor Who Global Celebration tag on Tumblr.
We wanted to send these out to everybody but the number of sparkly blue envelopes is finite while the number of Whovians is infinitely expanding (fact.)
And that’s when we realized that THE INTERNET was probably Time Lord technology infinite!
Here you’ll find bingo to play while you’re watching 'Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor', recipes for om noms to make for your celebration, printable invites to send to your friends, decorations for cupcakes, popcorn holders, and more.
Best of all, most of the things in this pack were created by your fellow fans of Doctor Who.
You can grab the entire pack as individual files by clicking the links below. Some parts have multiple pages so make sure you keep track of them.
(We tried to keep the images at sizes that would suit most people’s computers, so make sure you’re viewing the images full sized before printing. If you want any of these bigger pop them into your fave photo editor and blow ‘em up!)
And let’s make this the best Doctor Who 50th Anniversary EVER!
