STEM Moon Shot – Museum of Flight

Brick Sorting

We’ve arrived at Seattle’s Museum of Flight and have begun the sorting of the 119,000 or so LEGO bricks required for the event, where we will be building a second Saturn V rocket!

Brick Sorting

This event in conjunction with The Museum of Flight is part of the museum’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The build of the Saturn V commences on Friday morning intending to finish on Sunday afternoon and young people from the age of 7 – 17 are invited to register with the museum to participate in the build of the rocket. You can sign up by heading over to the museum’s website or clicking here.

The 11.5ft rocket has been redesigned since the initial outing in 2018 where a few subtle changes have been made to bring it closer to the original Saturn V rocket.

You can follow the progress of the team over the week through our social media channels, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
