Lego Lady Geologist

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 
    microanalysis software. 

Please help support this project to show other STEM research opportunities!
