My toddler is starting to become interested in Legos and, after last year's solar eclipse, my teenager has become increasingly interested in space. Needless to say, when I found out about this upcoming event at BSU, our whole family was excited!

Saturday, February 3 from 9a.m.-4p.m., Boise State and Idea Brick Works will be hosting STEM Moon Shot - a celebration of the science and engineering that landed humans on the moon. You and your family can learn about space flight with the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) professionals that make it happen.

Participants are invited to help build a 11.5ft tall Lego model of the Saturn V Moon Rocket, compete in design competitions with prizes throughout the day, learn about various Lego machines, and join in a Lego free build. To commemorate the day you can build and take home a FREE 14" model of the Saturn V rocket.

This event is open for all ages, though some stations are ideal for (and only offer prizes to) ages 7-14. Younger kids are encouraged to participate and will receive a surprise as well.

STEM Moon Shot will take place in the Simplot Ballroom at the Student Union Building. FREE parking is available at the Lincoln Parking Garage on the corner of University and Lincoln. You can pre-register and plan your day in advance, HERE!
