The LEGO Group launches a new educational “fun-fact” series on its newly created STEM YouTube Kids channel, LEGO Discover.

How far is it to the moon? What are rainbows? Which was the first animal to go into space?

Those are exactly the questions the new “Explained with LEGO Bricks” series is aiming to answer with both educational facts through live-action, but also humorous LEGO stop motion sections and cut-scenes.

The show’s purpose is to use the fun of the LEGO Bricks to draw kids in a topic they would be naturally curious about, and prompt them to know more. All episodes will aim to do this with various topics about science, nature and technology as part of the larger effort to get more kids interested into STEM related topics.

Early October, the LEGO Group launched a dedicated YouTube Kids channel for everything STEM related: LEGO Discover. This channel aim is to teach kids modern skills in a fun way thanks to the LEGO product and bricks and make the overall LEGO STEAM programs and initiatives accessible to a younger audience. The channel community has already grown to over 10,000 subscribers.

Wooeden Roller Coaster

I always wanted to build roller coaster out of the Lego bricks, but after i have seen this construction by Chairudo i will pass. Won’t build anything half as impressive.

Then there is that new roller coaster system LEGO is releasing in 2018 sets, that makes building your home version of a roller coaster track much more possible.

LEGO Ideas 2017 first batch review.

Over the past several months, the LEGO Review Board has carefully reviewed the 11 projects that reached 10,000 supporters between January and May 2017, our first review qualification period of 2017. We’re grateful for the energy and effort that each member has put into their project, as it’s certainly a big feat to get 10,000 supporters in itself. Congrats to everyone!

Tron Legacy Light Cycle

Congratulations to BrickBros UK for their inspired design, which will officially become one of the next LEGO Ideas sets!

We can’t wait to see Tom and Drew’s Tron Legacy Light Cycle come to life in LEGO bricks.

If you’d like to learn more about Tom & Drew then make sure to check out their 10K Club Interview.

Nikola Tesla and one of his Machines

Nikola Tesla

Here is my newest MOC showing Nikola Tesla and one of his machines. In fact this is not Tesla’s machine but magnetic bearing inspired by works of Yoshihito Isogawa, and his playing with non Lego neodymium magnets.

Beware those magnets are not safe for kids, and can be lethal if swallowed. If you swallow two of them and they snap through your internal organs they can cause perforation and serious injuries.

Below is video showing how it works, but if you want to see it in person, join me in Skaerbaek 2017 where this MOC will be presented.

LEGO House

LEGO House will open officially on 28th of september, but Sariel was able to take a sneak peek already.  Lego House is home of a brick and you can find there all things connected with LEGO past, present and future. There is even a section showcasing MOCs built from fans from all over the world.  I’m proud to have my models there too (although not all of them are there yet), and my Zbudujmy’to colleague Jarek Książczyk better known as Jerac has his models displayed there too.

I will be there setting up the rest of my mocs there and then visit it on AFOL opening on 22nd. I will make my own video when i get back from the trip.
