Lego have now released an all-women Research Institute on their online shop featuring an Astronomer who discovers new stars and planets with the telescope, a Paleontologist who studies the origin of the dinosaurs, and a Chemist that does experiments in the laboratory.
The set’s production follows a massive online support campaign for an original idea by Ellen Kooijman. Many have praised the set for promoting women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths & Medicine).
The complete set consists of 165 parts and suitable for over 10s. It’s priced at £15.99 and is Item 21110.
Will you be buying it? Does it really help to ‘normalise’ women in STEMM?
