LEGO and NASA have announced an official partnership, inviting you to explore space with Mission to Space! This new, interactive program comes after the recently announced Apollo 11 LEGO Ideas set and marks a new chapter in LEGO’s ongoing relationship with NASA.
According to NASA,
NASA and LEGO have worked together to produce a fun and engaging on-line summer activity. Mission to Space takes kids on a journey through space with visits to the International Space Station, Mars and Jupiter, and gives kids a chance to make their own space creations through an on-line building challenge. NASA research in the four topic areas is essential to humanity’s continuing journey of exploration.
You will learn some pretty amazing facts (from 2011 to 2016, 28 different LEGO sets have been delivered to the ISS!). There are videos showing daily life aboard the ISS, games, quizzes, and an interview with Andreas Mogensen, Denmark’s first astronaut!
