Ring in the new year with a 12 new princesses with powertools calendar, via reinvented magazine
We set out to create a calendar featuring the classic Princesses many of us grew up with. Too often, young girls are presented with the idea that they can be either a princess or an engineer: we are proving they can be both. Our Princesses with Power Tools Calendar is a perfect example of that– featuring 12 incredible women and nonbinary individuals in STEM and the Trades doing their work in a princess gown.
Inspired by Beauty and the Bolt’s incredibly popular #PrincessesWithPowerTools program which has taught nearly 5,000 kids to use their first power tool, this one-of-a-kind calendar is back! With your help, Reinvented Inc. is determined to get even more calendars to students and teachers in 2022 than ever before!
