When Judy was a child, she would take objects apart and attempt to put them back together, built forts, and played in creeks. Judy was first introduced to engineering by her father. Her father was a civil engineer.
When Judy was an adult, she felt toys were gender specific. Boys got building blocks and fake tools, and girls got dolls and kitchen sets. Also, boy colors were red, blue, and green (my favorite colors), and girls favorite colors were pink and purple.
