LEGO makes more women in science!

Standard

Nine months ago, I asked LEGO to make more female scientists. As a start, I cobbled together a few from spare parts at home: arachnologist, chiropterist, herpetologist, ichthyologist and ornithologist. Click through to check them out. I made them with my 10-year old son.

I never thought they’d make a chiropterist. But, now, they indeed they are making an astronomer, a chemist, and a paleontologist!

They are calling this set the LEGO Research Institute. Which is a great name, because it has nothing to do with the gender of the scientists at all.

This set was proposed by Alatariel Elensar and selected by LEGO. Tremendous work Dr. Elensar!

When girls are soon playing with these LEGOs, I imagine some of them will be singing this:

Thanks to Romi Burks for the heads up on the news.
