Lego is entering the classroom. Providing many interesting topics and experiments about physics, mechanics, robotics, live and space science and of course providing a lot of fun to pupils and teachers. The real power of Lego is the process of disassembling and rebuilding structures again and again. You got an idea take your components and build it. Using a lot of creative power and supports your imagination about 3D modelling. Houses, cars, ships, sceneries and of space ships build everything you can think of.
