Women of NASA on LEGO Ideas - Mae Jemison

This vignette of Mae Jemison is part of "Women of NASA," a project on the LEGO Ideas contest celebrating five pioneering women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Vote to make this a real LEGO set:


Trained as a medical doctor, Jemison became the first African-American woman in space in 1992. After retiring from NASA, Jemison established a company that develops new technologies and encourages students in the sciences.


If this project receives 10,000 votes, you could soon buy one at a LEGO store near you!


The full Women of NASA set includes four additional minifigures — of Sally Ride, Katherine Johnson, Margaret Hamilton, and Nancy Grace Roman — plus vignettes including a microscale Hubble Space Telescope, space shuttle, and replica of a famous photo showing the code that got astronauts to the moon.
