Let's bring research geology and female geologists to Lego!
Lego Ideas is a submission site for new Lego project kit concepts. Geologist Circe Verba has introduced the idea for a kit featuring female geologists! Check out her description below, and click through to vote for her submission on Lego Ideas.
Research Geology In Action!
I'm a female research geologist with a love of legos- this is a sample of my career. The scene here shows research geologists discovering minerals in a limestone rock formation and the characterization of the minerals in the laboratory.
- The entire project has 213 pieces total.
- Field geology: A female and male geologist with a dog (there's always the obligatory geology dog) exploring a crystal cave system complete with stratigraphic layers. Accessory pieces include: compass/brunton, rock hammer, shovel, and a geology dog.
- Petrographic laboratory: Petrographic laboratory: Mineral analysis performed with a light
microscope and a scanning electron microscope (SEM) complete with
an electron backscatter detector to distinguish phases and an energy dispersive
X-ray spectrometer (EDS) to determine elemental composition using
