Girls want to be engineers, not princesses!

Hello there! 
The toy company Goldie Blox (toys for future inventors) made this amazing commercial with three little girls: Sabrina, Raven and Reese. 
It's a video against stereotypes, against "pink" toys. 
Girls, don't underestimate yourselves. You have got a great potential. You can be what you want to be. It could be great to be scientists, mathematicians, engineers or computer programmers! It could be great to create the things you imagine.

Why the toys for girls are not usually toys that encourage girls to enter in technology or engineering? 
Why do girls always have to play with dollhouses?
At Our school,  we want to change things, so girls and boys are learning  programming language with two free amazing iPad apps:  Daisy the Dinosaur for 1st & 2nd grades,  Hopscotch  for 3rd & 4th grades and Scratch for 5th & 6th grades.

I really love Hopscotch!!
