LEGO Education and NASA have teamed up to invite teachers and students from across the United States to participate in an educational program designed to inspire the exploration of science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

This is so cool!  If you love building with LEGOs check out the activities you can try at the same time as the astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS). During the first phase astronauts are building LEGO Education models and recording results. Each activity will have a teachers guide and worksheets to go along!  Kids can then give each activity a try and compare their results to the results the astronauts received!

    Ola! Karla,
    In addition to your post I was wondering, Lego is the toy building set of choice for children, and the young at heart, worldwide. Lego is a company in Denmark known for its colorful plastic bricks that interlock to build everything from buildings to space ships. To accompany the building bricks, other accessories are sometimes included, such as gears, wheels, and the ever-popular minifigures with interchangeable heads, hands, legs and torso. Everything made using Lego bricks can easily be taken apart and built again and again. Ever since they first debuted in 1940, the Lego Company has grown to become so massive that it now has several theme parks and video games to just name a couple.
    All the Best

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Lego toys. They are one of the few toy ranges that have truly retained their magic for a lot of people. While more and more toys either fade away or get an update that robs them of what made them special in the first place, you really know where you are with Lego toys. I have very fond memories indeed of making all manner of things with mixed up Lego bricks, and that was a huge part of the fun.
