Each year, the famous Barbie doll "chooses" a new career that will serve as inspiration and role model for girls. Throughout his life, he has had more than 150 careers in different areas: education, medicine, politics, science, arts and business, among others.

Now, the Mattel company has announced the new race this year: Robotics Engineer . We tell you all about the new twist that Barbie gives to his career.

The new doll of Barbie will take the robotics race for the first time and will be accompanied by safety glasses, her miniature laptop and a small robot. The doll is now available online in the store section of the official Mattel website.

But this doll has something very special, because it is more than just a toy. The company Mattel has made an alliance with Tynker, a programming platform made especially for children and to which they will have access to basic programming lessons (regardless of whether they buy the doll or not).

Through simple and fun lessons and entering the section "You can be anything", girls can learn about programming, through simulating developing in different professions. The lessons will focus on solving problems, developing logic and other basic elements of programming.

The doll is available in four skin tones and is believed to help girls visualize themselves in the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM or STEM).
