Lego my Lambeau: Engineering students replicate legendary stadium


It may not be up there with, say, the Taj Mahal or the Great Pyramid, but it's pretty nifty anyway: A group of students from Milwaukee School of Engineering have been busy constructing a Lego replica of Lambeau Field.

They’re working on the replica so that it’s finished in time for Saturday night’s Family Night at the venue. It was be displayed in the Atrium from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, according to the Green Bay Post Gazette, all 130,000 Legos-worth of it.

The 13-by-15 foot Lego Lambeau features a working scoreboard, lights, seating, interior and exterior architectural details, and a field complete with players, according to the Star Tribune.

The students traveled to Green Bay earlier this year to map out their building strategy, taking photos of the stadium from different angles, completing a blueprint and even using Google Earth to get things right, according to the POst Gazette. The blueprint helped them figure out the size and number of Legos they would need for the effort.

Here's a video of the handiwork.
