Engineering toy for special education

Hi Debbie,

I am completely inspired by your quest to design a completely engaging toy for the future's engineers. Recently graduating from Penn State with my B.S. in Special Education and M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, I can't help but wonder of the potential of this kind of toy in classrooms, specifically those that help students with learning disabilities. Have you completed any research on your product in a learning disabled demographic? I would be very interested in the results!

All the best,

Melissa

Hi Melissa,

We are very interested in exploring how GoldieBlox could be used as a learning tool in the classroom...it's on our to-do list this year. We'll be sharing highlights on our progress in our blog, Facebook, Twitter and mailing list updates. Subscribe to any or all of the above to stay in the loop! Links to all of them are on the homepage of our website: www.goldieblox.com

Thanks so much for reaching out and for sharing your interest and passion for this important issue.

Oh, and congrats on your graduation...big milestone!

Best,

Debbie
