MIT News science editor and writer Maia Weinstock created a project that feels like it’s a very, very long time coming. As part of Lego Ideas (the company’s very dope branch that allows the general population to send through concepts) Weinstock and Lego have announced the “Women of NASA” set. With figures of a bunch of significant NASA employees, the set is planning to include the likes of Mae Jemison (the first African American woman in space) and Nancy Grace Roman (aka Mother of Hubble). Surrounded by tech, books, rockets and more, Lego’s Women of NASA will surely be inspiring for young women—and another way to make them feel visible and important.
