About Debbie Sterling
Debbie has made it her mission in life to tackle the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and math. GoldieBlox is a book series+construction set that engages kids to build through the story of Goldie, the girl inventor who solves problems by building simple machines. Debbie writes and illustrates Goldie's stories, taking inspiration from her grandmother, one of the first female cartoonists and creator of "Mr. Magoo". Her company, launched in 2012, raised over $285,000 in 30 days through Kickstarter, and has been featured in numerous publications.
