In her post about oceanographer Sylvia Earle getting recognized this month by Glamour magazine for her contributions to science and society, Maia Weinstock included this picture of a custom Lego figurine of Dr. Earle scuba diving. It is part of her highly entertaining collection of Scitweeps she creates out of Legos and posts on Flickr. Fifty-nine lucky science-types have been singled out for Weinstock’s Lego portraits – many of them were featured in an exhibit featuring portraits of women in science at the Art.Science.Gallery in Austin, TX recently. Take a look and treat yourself to a laugh.
