These miniature women are the future of Lego

Lego Ideas is an opportunity for fans to build their own sets and submit them to Lego, which selects one to manufacture and sell. Ellen Kooijman, a geochemist, won the most recent contest with her proposal for a set of female scientists working in their labs. Her goal, she wrote, was to address a shortage of professional women in Lego’s sets. (Lego first released a female minifig chemist last year, according to Leg Godt.) A tip of the hat to Tim Carmody.
