LEGO has been knocking it out of the part with its LEGO Ideas line – sometimes with great IP acquisitions, and sometimes by celebrating kick-ass people in STEM. The toy company announced the latest LEGO Ideas collection that celebrates the Women of NASA.
Follow in the footsteps of 4 pioneering women of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration—America’s space agency) with this fun and inspiring LEGO® set. Build the Hubble Space Telescope and learn astronomy with the ‘Mother of Hubble’ Nancy Grace Roman. Develop the software for space missions with computer scientist Margaret Hamilton. And launch the space shuttle with Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space, and Mae Jemison, the world’s first woman of color in space. Build, play, learn and one day you too could become a science, technology, engineering or mathematics superstar!
This is a no-brainer to pick up. The set is simple, doesn’t cost a whole lot, and helps promote women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The Women of NASA set goes on sale on November 1, 2017 for a SRP of $24.99. If you want to get this, I suggest waking up bright and early, because this set will sell out faster than the LEGO Ideas Research Institute.
