The Research Institute has everything that you need to explore the world below, around and above us! Created by real-life geoscientist, Ellen Kooijman (alias:Alatariel) and selected by LEGO Ideas members (formerly known as CUUSOO), this collection of scenes depicts three varied professions within the world of natural science.
Help the paleontologist study the origin of dinosaurs with the magnifying glass, map the skies with the astronomer and her telescope and assist the chemist as she carries out experiments in her lab.
This set also includes building instructions, as well as a booklet containing information about the creator and an introduction to each of the professions featured in the set. There’s a whole world of exciting professions out there to explore – build and role play them to see if they suit you!
Last but not least, this set includes 3 mini figures: paleontologist, astronomer and a chemist.

Great toy for girls and boys – By Helena Herbert on January 29, 2016
I got this for my niece, so she can learn more about what her aunt does (research science). It’s been a hit with my nephew too… reminding me that it is important for both girls and boys to have female role models and play things. I will now purchase for my sons as well.
Great toy! – By Anna M. on December 24, 2015
Bought this for my granddaughter. Love the idea of showcasing women in science. She loved it. I love legos. My kids are grown and they still love Legos.
