LEGO’s Mars exhibit ends tour today at KSC Visitor Complex Florida Today

The parking lot of Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor’s Complex has been turned into the red planet this weekend to celebrate the final stop of LEGO’s Life on Mars Encounter. The walk-through trailer houses an interactive, hands-on exhibit built with more than a 250,000 LEGOs. Green aliens, Mars rovers and LEGO planets are accompanied by educational signs that give little tidbits about Mars. The exhibit was designed to encourage kids to learn more about space, and to build their interest in Mars exploration, said Stephen Meixner, tour manager. Michelle Salyer, spokeswoman for Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex said the Life on Mars exhibit also includes a baby and preschool area for small children.
