Lego Ideas 40595 Tribute to Galileo Galilei

Unlike most gifts from the brand, this set is designed by fans. A tribute to Galilei emerged as the winner of a so-called Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competition last summer. Through the IDEAS programme, LEGO challenges fans to design their own science-inspired model.

That Galileo won is more than fitting: he was the best man astronomer, philosopher, physicist and mathematician. Our LinkedIn profile can’t compete with that.

IDEAS is a platform where fans can share their self-designed collections all year round. Among all bad things there are true gems. LEGO understands this too. That’s why the Danes regularly select the best designs, which are then released as a collection. Think of this beautiful grand piano, or this epic Viking city.

The chock is full of references to science

Homage to Galileo Galilei consists of 307 bricks, from which you can assemble a miniature version of his study. Includes a museum-worthy name plate. In addition to the Italian himself, you can also build some references to his scientific achievements.

The best man brought the telescope to him Next levelHe drew a map of the moon and worked on the heliocentric theory. In other words, the theory that the Earth and other planets revolve around the Sun. For this reason, I also built a small telescope, a model of our solar system, a map of the Earth and other details in LEGO form. Not bad for a “free” group.
