It has been over a year since the toy product Goldiblox was funded on Kickstarter. Goldiblox is designed to get girls building and thinking how things work...and may lead to STEM interests and careers down the road. The Stanford mechanical engineer and entrepreneur's product continues to gain attention in the marketplace -- and videos like this which rewrites a popular Beastie Boys song, will help fuel the charge! Purchase Goldiblox here http://www.goldieblox.com or at Toys R Us.
