Does your child know the story of Nancy Grace Roman? How about Sally Ride and Mae Jemison? Or Margaret Hamilton?
LEGO has made it a little easier to teach your kids about these female pioneers in STEM and space exploration through its Women of NASA kit, which is on sale now on Amazon for $15.99. The kit features mini figures of four women:
- Nancy Grace Roman was instrumental in the development of the Hubble Space Telescope.
- Margaret Hamilton helped develop the guidance and navigation system for the Apollo spacecraft and is credited with coining the term software engineering.
- Sally Ride was the first woman to travel in space.
- Mae Jemison was the first African-American woman to travel in space.
Fans can also use the kit to build items related to each woman's experiences, including a Hubble telescope, a Space Shuttle and books representing the Apollo guidance system.
The kit already has its share of fans on Twitter.
