Join the family LEGO Space Challenge!

Families across Essex are invited to join Make Happen and JTRS at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus on Saturday 12 March 2022, from 10am to 4pm, for a day jam-packed full of space-themed, fun, family LEGO challenges!

Your mission (if you choose to accept it!) is to save the astronauts and bring them home safely. Mission accepted? Get the whole family involved in the action, designing, creating and coding a LEGO space rover. Save the day by removing asteroids from the spaceship’s path, deploy the space station and rescue the stranded astronauts.
