Happy International Women’s Day! The theme of this year’s campaign is #BalanceForBetter and it is meant to help us think of ways that we can help to forge a more gender-balanced world.
Here at littleBits, we have a lot of respect for women throughout history. We look to them every day for insight and perspective on how to be strong, brave, and forward-thinking. Below are some of our inspirations.
If you’ve ever played around with littleBits, regardless of your age, gender, or technical level, you’ve experienced the delight derived from inventing something with your own two hands. littleBits is committed to getting kids — and especially girls — into STEAM by reaching them before middle school.
