This is so cool! If you love building with LEGOs check out the activities you can try at the same time as the astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS). During the first phase astronauts are building LEGO Education models and recording results. Each activity will have a teachers guide and worksheets to go along! Kids can then give each activity a try and compare their results to the results the astronauts received!
