Lego calls the exhibit an “immersive, hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) learning experience” that duties individuals with serving to two Lego Education minifigures, Kate and Kyle, put together for the Artemis 1 launch.
The expertise options three studying modules from Lego’s Build to Launch: A STEAM Exploration Series designed in collaboration with NASA: Getting to Space, Testing and Transport, and Working in Space. Participants can full three hands-on missions that take them by means of Kate and Kyle’s pre-flight guidelines, taking about 10 minutes to finish.
In addition to the particular interactive Artemis 1 expertise, Lego and KSC are providing a collection of “engineer design challenges and make-and-take activities” by means of the Lego Build to Launch: A STEAM Exploration Series, which gives a free 10-week studying collection out there Online.
“It has been inspiring to see students around the world learn about Artemis 1 and discover the possibilities in STEAM through the Build to Launch series,” stated Jenny Nash, head of Education Impact U.S. at Lego Education. “With this launch, we are going to send Kate and Kyle to space in a once in a lifetime real-world application for students and look forward to sparking even more joy, curiosity, and a love of learning in the next generation of STEAM and space explorers.”
