Alice Brooks grew up playing visiting her dad’s robotics lab. When she asked for a Barbie, he gave her a mini saw. So, she made her own doll!

Today, Alice is an engineer with degrees from MIT and Stanford. She and her co-founders at Maykah (the maker of Roominate dollhouses with working circuits) wish they saw more women in their upper level math and science classes. 

They designed Roominate to develop young girls’ confidence and enthusiasm for math, science, and learning through fun hands-on play.

And hopefully soon, this ratio will change in company boardrooms, engineering departments and science laboratories everywhere.
