A few days ago we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon. On that occasion, the LEGO Group began a month of events around the world to inspire new generations to continue discovering the Universe, on the occasion of the results of a worldwide study conducted with children between 8 and 12 years of age in terms of space exploration.
According to a Harris Poll and LEGO survey conducted in the United States, United Kingdom and China, 86% of children between 8 and 12 years of age say they are interested in space exploration and 90% of them want to learn more. Interestingly, 75% of the parents who participated in the survey believe that their children are interested in space, but only 53% of children point out that their interest in the space is driven by their parents, citing teachers (79% ) and the Internet (71%) as the first sources of knowledge… Today we add a series of ideas to decorate the children's bedroom with space theme.
Fifty years ago, Apollo 11 took astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins to the moon, and the LEGO study reveals that today's children know the history of space exploration well. In a multiple-choice question, most children (85%) can identify Neil Armstrong as the first person to walk on the moon (88% in the US, 87% in the United Kingdom, 79% in China). Nor would it be easy to fool the little ones with fantasies (only 2% believe it was Buzz Lightyear).
The study also reveals that, currently, Children who aspire to be Youtubers (29%) triple those who want to be astronauts (11%). When asked about those careers that are part of a space exploration mission, the astronaut option was the most chosen response (90%), followed by an engineer (58%) and a computer programmer (52%). However, only seven percent of children see a role for a farmer or gardener in a space program, indicating that many children still do not realize all the different jobs needed to support a space travel. So like everything adds up, we don't have to try encourage your interest in knowledge of space Through the decoration. Here are some ideas ...

We also add that to commemorate the milestone, a team of 10 designers and LEGO Master Builders dedicated almost 300 hours to design and build a life-size LEGO model of a lunar module pilot Apollo 11, inspired by the first humans to step on the moon. The model replicates the space suits used on the Moon in 1969, presents 10 different colors and is built with 30,000 LEGO bricks. The model was announced to the public during the Apollo 50 Festival at the National Mall in Washington, organized by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, between July 18 and 20.
