*Build of the Week is a regularly occurring segment on Renovated Learning where I share some of the awesome stuff my students have been making over the past week.*
My school is a NASA Explorer school, so naturally my students were very excited about the Orion launch a few weeks ago. This inspired a lot of great space themed LEGO builds, and it turned out to be enough to create our own little rocket garden.
The major build was a replica of the Orion rocket itself. Which my students were quick to correct – Orion is the capsule, the main part of the body is the Delta IV heavy rocket. The builder of the Delta IV clarified that she also created the launch pad, support system and Orion capsule.
We had several other space themed LEGO builds. This satelite below is an interplanetary stage module, designed for missions to Mars. The blue plates are solar panels.
We also had a lot of smaller builds, like a moon rover, space capsule, and random rockets.
Have your students students celebrated the historic launch of the Orion?
