Swindon Prepares to Make Giant Super Mario Mosaic

Posted by TurtleGirl On December - 8 - 2010

On Saturday 11th December, the Museum of Computing in Swindon will be staging an event combining two favourite activities of children of all ages, the creative world of the LEGO brick and computer gaming.  The highlight of the day will be the creation of a giant Super Mario mosaic built from nearly 9000 LEGO tiles!
 

Everyone is welcome to take a part in the mosaic creation and also in the ‘great tile counting competition’. A fantastic LEGO set is waiting for the winner!
 

Visitors will be able to make their own games characters from LEGO bricks and there will be a chance to play LEGO computer games including N64 LEGO Racers, LEGO Indiana Jones and LEGO Star Wars. For budding robotics engineers, there will be an opportunity to program their own LEGO Mindstorms robot.
 

Simon Webb, Curator of the Museum of Computing said: ‘It’s going to be an awesome day out for everybody.  I have to admit a serious passion for LEGO and for computer gaming, this event is a bit of a dream come true.’
 

For more details visit the Museum of Computing website www.museumofcomputing.org.uk or follow their Facebook and Twitter links.
 

The museum will be open from 09:30 to 17:00.  Admission fees are £5.00 for a family ticket, £2 for adults, £1.50 for Students and Concessions, children age 6-15 yrs cost £1, under 5’s go free.
