Get Creative With LEGO & Natural History Museum

It’s time to get creative as LEGO® join forces with the Natural History Museum for a weekly online build challenge. Over the next four weeks, you’ll be tasked with creating a LEGO life form, which could have been inspired by an alien life form from beyond the stars. Once you’ve built it, share your creation on social media. There will be a different theme each week. Read below for further details.

LEGO NHM Workshops

Calling all budding astrobiologists!

Your mission

The LEGO Group and the Natural History Museum are challenging you to predict what life could look like in other parts of the universe.

Every Wednesday for four weeks we will be introducing a new environment, inspired by a real moon or exoplanet in our galaxy.


Use your imagination to build your own LEGO® Life Form that could survive in that environment. You’ll need to think carefully about what adaptations life might need to survive in those conditions. You can use LEGO bricks or any materials you have around the house.


As all scientists do, make sure you share your ideas! Share your life forms with us and tell us how they are adapted. Use #NHMLEGO and tag @NHM_Learn and @LEGO_Group to share.

  1. Hi,
    My children have loved creating space alien creatures with lego, however we do not have a Twitter account and do not wish to create one. Is there another way we can send you a photo of their creations? Email?

    • I believe you can only enter via social media in general (not just Twitter) I assume it’s because of new data laws. But I suggest contacting NHM directly as they will be able to advise better
