Lego Lab

This week in LEGO Lab, our fearless builders traveled to the rainforests of South America in search of the elusive Goliath Bird Eating Spider. Their task-to build a special cage for the Goliath to be transported safely back to the United States for further study. Special care was taken to build a comfortable cage for this giant spider that is the size of a dinner plate. Builders included at least one window so the specimen could be observed at all times and a lid or top to the cage to prevent this clever spider from escaping. As always, our builders rose to the challenge and created some amazing cages for our eight legged creatures.
