And now for a bit of inspiration: NASA and LEGO have launched an Imagine and Build contest, with one of the prizes being the just approved Lego Curiosity Rover set!
The Curiosity Rover came to life through LEGO’s CUUSOO site, garnering enough votes to be considered for production as an official LEGO set. LEGO announced just last week they will indeed produce this set. Now is your chance to win one of these new sets when they are released next year!
There are two challenges:
- Imagine the Future Beyond Earth – Build a LEGO model of a future NASA mission – anything NASA has on the books up through 2030!
- Inventing the Future of Flight – Develop a prototype for an aircraft of tomorrow! This contest has a stronger academic focus, since it also requires submitting a research paper on your design.
