A Glasgow academic has become an online sensation after setting up a social media account using Lego’s new ‘Research Institute’ set.
Lego unveiled its first ever range of female scientists last week, with the popular sets selling out in just three days.
But when Glasgow scientist Donna Yates took receipt of her own box of mini boffins in the post, she managed to create an overnight Lego phenomenon.
“It was delivered in the middle of a terrible rainy day on Friday,” said the University of Glasgow archaeologist.
“My colleague and I were filling out our performance evaluations which we’d had to re-do and it was all so slow and frustrating,” Donna continues.
“We opened it up and started putting the pieces together.”
