Goldie Blox’s new animated music video featuring Emily Haines of Metric #MusicMonday
Check out this great new music video from Goldie Blox and Emily Haines of Metric.
Goldie knows that any “failed” experiment is really just one step closer to that “a-ha” moment… the moment when Lightning Strikes, and the solution becomes clear.
In engineering, and in life, failure is a huge part of any great success. No real innovation happens without it. The problem is, girls are less likely to try new things when they’re not sure of the outcome, and are less likely to invest in the power of practice and effort; they believe that they are either born with any given skill set, or they’re not.
Let Goldie show your girl how to keep trying until she hits a breakthrough, her moment of inspiration. Your daughter deserves to have the confidence to keep at it until Lightning Strikes.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
