Unlocking Potential, One Doll at a Time – Gayle Keller’s Vision for a new STEAM Generation

Gayle Keller, the author of the international bestselling book Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead, announced today the launch of her line of dolls, Theodora S.T.E.A.M. Girls. On a mission to bring female empowerment to young girls, the Theodora S.T.E.A.M. Girls™ line features five diverse dolls that each possess a special superpower designed to help young girls discover their own strengths.

As a former software sales executive, Keller experienced first-hand the inequalities and difficulties as a woman in STEAM. As a mother of two daughters, this troubled her and fueled her determination to uncover the root causes behind the gender gap in STEAM careers. Keller’s mission is to reshape the landscape of STEAM and instill in young girls the confidence needed to achieve their dreams. 

“Girls are systematically steered away from science and math throughout their education, limiting their future prospects. This is a reality that I am on a mission to change with Theodora S.T.E.A.M. Girls™,” says Keller, “The younger we introduce girls to STEAM, the more likely they are to explore an education in those fields.”

Meet Theodora S.T.E.A.M. Girls™, a diverse source of inspiration. These 15-inch luxury dolls come with removable outer clothing and eight-page sticker activity books that encourage the exploration of STEAM. 

  • Silla the Scientist is an Asian American with a superpower for clarity who loves exploration and experimentation. 
  • Tyriqa the Techie, an African American, wields decisiveness as her superpower and is always tinkering with gadgets.
  • Elaine, an American Engineer, boasts confidence as her superpower and tackles challenges with a curious mind.
  • Antonia, the Artist, is Latin American and expresses herself through art with the superpower of courage. 
  • Maalika, the Mathematician, a Hindi Indian American, has the superpower of balance and is fond of numbers and complex math problem-solving. 

Theodora S.T.E.A.M. Girls™ are available for purchase individually or in a full set on the brand’s website.
