Goldie Blox Goes Viral

This commercial is the winning small business ad that will run tonight on the Super Bowl. The game was invented by a woman engineer who was often the lone woman in her engineering classes at Stamford. The one constant for women not cracking the “golden ceiling” is lack of math and science. Toy stores have already placed orders for this game, and word is that these stereotypes of “math and science is for boys ” and “dolls and princesses being for girls,” are on the way to being shattered.

Is this true in Indian education?  It seems most of the men I have talked to have an engineering degree and make changes to business  or something else, if they desire in grad school.   Is this true with the woman? Engineering, math, and science are seem to be the core education  in India.

  1. I don’t know anything about Indian education but my granddaughter, who will be starting college in the fall, is getting her degree in Math:) Nice add, I just don’t know why there was so much pink.
