LEGO and NASA Building and Exploring Our Future

LEGO and NASA have come together to send a LEGO set on a space shuttle into orbit this week. The Danish toy maker and the premier space agency are hoping to spark the interest of children in science, technology, engineering and math.

LEGO has over 25 years of experience in introducing pre-school children to the concepts of animals, machines and robotics. The three year partnership will use LEGO bricks with NASA’s space exploration missions.

The partnership theme is “Building and Exploring Our Future.” The space themed products will be available in a wide range from those for young children and those for adults. The products will also have NASA inspired education material.

The Endeavour’s STS-134 mission in February 2012 will see special LEGO sets sent to the International Space Station where they will be assembled by astronauts. Children and study groups across the country will watch the construction process and activities.
