LEGO space building at the Natural History Museum begins today

Space themed LEGO building is coming to the Natural History Museum, starting today.

Two different LEGO building activities will begin today at the Natural History Museum. With a keen focus on space exploration thanks to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, London’s Natural History Museum has collaborated with the LEGO Group and LEGO Education on space themed building activities.

LEGO Life Forms will allow the whole family to build a creature that is for a specific environment. Using the imagination, attendees will construct a life form for a different planet. The activity takes place in the Waterhouse Gallery and Zoology spirit building and is free to get involved with.

Mission to Mars: LEGO Explorers Workshop is a workshop designed for families, teaching guests how to build and code a Martian rover, with the opportunity to test it on a large-scale replica of the surface of Mars. The workshop uses LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 and allows attendees to learn more about the challenges of space exploration.

Until 2 August, it takes place in the Waterhouse Gallery, then until August 11 it takes place in the Zoology spirit building. Those looking to participate must sign up in advance – for free – at the venue website.
