Alice forwarded this great eNewsletter from the Laurel Center for Research on Girls: Engaging Girls in STEM: LCRG’s Gift Guide for Girls. It suggests 3-4 gifts that “engage and encourage girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM),” and aligns each gift with one of the Center’s research topics: Collaboration, Tinkering, Role Models, and Meaningful Objects. Of course, they gifts could be excellent presents for any student!

We are a huge fan of MagnaTiles and Legos at our house – and many of the book suggestions, including Rosie Revere, Engineer, is in the Park School Library!

Elaine also passed along some more great suggestions:
Snap Circuits
Keva planks
Kiwi Crate
