In a time when, according to the trade press, few US students want to go into engineeering, one wonders why events such as this one are aimed just at girls? Interesting about the doll house. Turns out, when my brother and I were about 5 years old, dad got us a doll house. We couldn't care less about dolls, but the intent of the doll house was to rig up battery operated lighting for each of the rooms. And it was a lot of fun.
