KNex Mighty Makers sets is creating toys to empower young girls by lighting their creative spark and inspiring their curiosity in science. KNex displays that toys, building sets and science are not gender specific.
Who says girls don’t like to build?
Who says girls can’t be interested in #STEM?
Who says girls can’t be MIGHTY?
NOT THESE GIRLS!
Estimates show the U.S. will have over 1.2 million unfilled jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math by 2018. The need for educated and excited workers in these fields grows each year! Without the needed coursework and training, many of the openings in STEM careers will go unfilled. This crisis pits job openings against a population that lacks the proper qualifications to fill these employment opportunities. Children educated in STEM-related disciplines will ultimately have lower unemployment rates and higher starting salaries than the population at large.
K’NEX has noticed a lack of women pursuing careers in STEM and they are looking to be the change! Young girls have a natural inclination towards building and designing, but there are very few options for them in the building toy aisle. Building, constructing, and creating, gives children the foundation they need to become lifelong learners who can solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively and adapt to change in todayâ€™s technologically evolving world. Mighty Makers building sets were designed by women to empower young girls and invites them to express their natural creativity with fun, colorful structures and characters. Mighty Makers sets aim to show every girl that she can be MIGHTY!
