New 'Career Of The Year' Barbie Is A Robotics Engineer!

posted by Sabrina - 

On Tuesday, Mattel, the company that makes Barbie dolls, announced Barbie's new career: robotics engineer!

The 2018 "Career of the Year" Barbie is now available online for $13.99. She comes with safety goggles, a doll-sized laptop computer, and a small humanoid robot. 

While robotics engineer is a first for Barbie, she's previously had several occupations in science, technology, engineering, and math, including as a computer engineer, astronaut, and video game developer. 

Barbie's "Career of the Year" title, aims to show girls that they can hold successful careers in occupations not commonly held by women in the past. 

Hopefully years from now, we will hear stories from female engineers who fondly remember their "Career of the Year" doll!

Girls need more role models. Let’s inspire the next generation to see themselves in careers underrepresented by women. By encouraging more girls to explore STEM with Robotics Engineer #Barbie, we show them that they can be anything. #YouCanBeAnything
