Last July we wrote about the Women Of NASA LEGO set while it was in the process of gathering the necessary votes for what would ultimately be a successful LEGO Ideas campaign. Simply crossing the 10,000 vote threshold isn’t enough to bring the idea into production however. LEGO still needs approve the idea, and that honor only goes to the best of the best. That having been said, The Women Of NASA LEGO Set has met the challenge and is now officially greenlit for production! Check out more details and the announcement video below.
A big congratulations to 20tauri on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer! As a science editor and writer, with a strong personal interest for space exploration as well as the history of women in science and engineering, Maia Weinstock’s Women of NASA project was a way for her to celebrate accomplished women in the STEM professions. In particular those who’ve made a big impact through their work at NASA.
We’re really excited to be able to introduce Maia’s Women of NASA set for its inspirational value as well as build and play experience.
We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for the Women of NASA set, so check back on LEGO Ideas in late 2017 or early 2018 for more details.
