If you’re among the many parents offended by the recent Lego sets marketed specifically to girls, including a nail salon and café, you’ll love this idea. Limor Fried, an accomplished women, engineer, successful entrepreneur, Wired cover girl, MIT graduate, and now Lego creator, is proposing an electronics engineering design lab Lego kit for girls that models Limor’s own businesses. Kudos to Limor, of Adafruit fame, for stepping up and giving smart girls some cool options.
The project isn’t a ‘go’ until it reaches 10,000 votes, so what are you waiting for? Register with Lego and then vote for this very cool project. Support young women’s aspirations to be smart, successful, creative, makers.
