Lego ‘Women of NASA’
An idea first mooted by Maia Weinstock, the deputy editor of MIT News, Lego’s Women of Nasa mini-figures are now a reality!
The set features four pioneering women of NASA and their areas of expertise:
- Astronomer and educator Nancy Grace Roman
- Computer scientist and entrepreneur Margaret Hamilton
- Astronaut, physicist and entrepreneur Sally Ride
- Astronaut, physician and engineer Mae Jemison
Kids will be able to role-play space exploration, from planning to moon landing. Each set also includes a booklet about the featured women of NASA, making it both fun and educational.
So, it’s no surprise that response has been overwhelming. The set is currently listed as ‘temporarily out of stock’ on Lego’s e-shop.
