The Votes Are In: Barbie Will Be a ... Computer Engineer!
Barbie is trading her pom poms for laptop.
After Barbie asked the world to help her choose her 125th career, the votes are in. She's now pursuing a career as a computer engineer!
Barbie designers worked with the Society of Women Engineers and the National Academy of Engineering to create Computer Engineer Barbie's wardrobe and accessories.
According to a Mattel press release, Computer Engineer Barbie will be rocking a "geek chic" look with a binary code-patterned tee and accessories like a smart phone, Bluetooth headset and laptop travel bag.
"As a computer engineer, Barbie will show girls that women can turn their ideas into realities that have a direct and positive impact on people's everyday lives in this exciting and rewarding career," Nora Lin, President, Society of Women Engineers, said in a Barbie press release.
We've always thought that women could do anything they wanted, and we're glad Barbie has caught up. What took her so long? Maybe associating computer engineers and the term "geek" has something to do with it.
