Roominate: The Doll House That Makes Girls Want to Innovate

by Hazel Chua

If you’ve taken a look at toys meant for girls lately, then you’ll notice that most of them are dolls or Princess-y type stuff. That’s not very conducive or encouraging, especially if you’re a parent who’s encouraging your kids to major in STEM subject fields, which are Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related courses. The toys aren’t the only things to blame, but they’re one of them. After all, a child’s growing up years play a huge part in who and what they grow up to be, right?

Working on this theory, a group from Palo Alto, California have come up with the Roominate project that’s currently up on Kickstarter. It’s a “stackable, attachable, and customizable miniature room” that the kids are supposed to build and put together themselves.

Roominate

The Roominate kit contains wooden building pieces and circuit components, and the sky is basically the limit since any number of assembled Roominates can be put together. Available electronic components allow for wiring up LED lighting, buzzers and fans (motors) in each of the rooms.

Roominate

A minimum pledge of $49 will get you one Roominate kit and a Roominate Reel – a mini-movie to encourage creativity and engagement. The larger your pledge, the more Roominate components you’ll get. Check out their Kickstarter page to find out more or make your contribution.
