Our Lego League team has begun working on their challenge and they’ve chosen ROCKET SHIPS as their subject. Can you tell I’m coaching the boys team? The girls chose alligators.
Over the last two weeks we’ve spent time researching rocket ships, how they are made and most importantly (for our challenge) how they are transported. This research led us to NASA’s Crawler transporter.
This video was by far the best one I could find online that showed the crawler in action.
NASA owns two Crawlers, at a sum of about $14 million dollars. I wonder how much we can build our lego challenge for?
