LEGO Set to Honor the Women of NASA

In time for Women’s Month and on the heels of the release of the Pharrell-produced movie, Hidden Figures, LEGO announced that there will be a LEGO set in honor of women that have played critical roles in the U.S Space Program aka NASA. In many cases, women’s work have gone unacknowledged and under-appreciated—especially as women have historically struggled to gain acceptance in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The LEGO set celebrates and features five notable NASA pioneers, and provides educational background for kids and their parents to learn about them as they build. These women include Margaret Hamilton, Katherine Johnson, Sally Ride, Nancy Grace Roman and Mae Jemison. Click the jump to find out how they contributed to making waves in NASA and images of the LEGO set.

Happy – A Children’s Book by Pharrell

In the wake of the mega-success of Pharrell’s 2014 hit song “Happy!”, Pharrell partners with publishing giant Penguin Books to bring the universal message of happiness into the homes of young readers everywhere. The book, which shares its name with the song, blends illustrations and photographs of children all over the world celebrating what happiness means to them.

Pharrell’s hope for the book is that it “inspires a child’s imagination and creativity and that it teaches the importance of being happy and true to yourself”.

Happy will be available for $19.99 USD at the Billionaire Boys Club NYC Flagship and most retailers that sell children’s books Tuesday, October 6th.

In addition to the release of the book, Pharrell and Penguin Books joined forces with non-profit literacy organization, FirstBook, to donate up to 50,000 books to children in need. The social media wide-campaign uses the #ReadHappy for supporters to share why reading makes them happy. Each post shared on Twitter and Instagram will lead to a donation.
