The LEGO Group is exhibiting at the Ontario Science Centre. From now until September 2nd, an 11-foot-tall LEGO SLS Rocket (the NASA Rocket built to take us from the Moon to Mars) will be on display and visitors will be invited to use their creativity to build what they imagine a city in space could look like out of LEGO bricks. This highly visual model and interactive building activity not only celebrates the historical mission but also inspire the next chapter of space exploration.
The LEGO Group is committed to inspiring the next generation of space exploration, with new for 2019 City Space sets, based on NASA’s ambition to visit Mars. A recent LEGO survey/Harris Poll helped uncovered that 86% of kids 8-12 say they are interested in space exploration (even they are 3 times as likely to aspire to be a YouTube star than an astronaut). As part of The LEGO Group’s continued commitment to space exploration, it has been announced that they are sending 50 children to NASA Space Camp in 2020 through a partnership with Scholastic and teachers in Title One school districts across the United States.
