LEGO® Education has partnered with NASA to create an educational program designed to inspire the exploration of science, technology, engineering, and math!
Through the LEGO Bricks in Space program, students work with astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) to conduct activities that test the effects of microgravity on simple machines.
A total of eight LEGO Education activities will be conducted on the ISS as astronauts record their results through video and crew commentary. Each video will then be uploaded to www.LEGOspace.com and will include a downloadable teacher's guide and student worksheet so classrooms can complete the same activity on Earth and compare results with the ISS crew. The first activity in the series is scheduled to be available for download this month.
