SMILE Alumni Proposes LEGO Set! March 25th, 2015
A former SMILE student who now works at the DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory has proposed the creation of a new Lego set dedicated to female geological scientists! The set would include both male and female geologists, a scanning electron microscope, minerals, and an “obligatory geology dog”. Though women are represented in geoscience departments, a recent study done by the American Geological Institute stated that women’s representation in geoscience and environmental occupations has not exceeded 30% since 2003.
In order to get the proposed set into production she needs to get 10,000 votes! If you are interested in supporting this project go to Lego’s website here!
