Lego is celebrating women in science. The toy maker says its next Lego set will be called "Research Institute," and will feature all female scientists.

This idea was submitted as part of a contest by a Lego fan who says it's meant to show girls they can become anything they want.

The kit includes an astronomer, a paleontologist and a chemist.

Lego says the final product will be released in August.
