LEGO Creature Challenge

For #ZoologyLive 2020 we challenge you to build an animal you have seen using LEGO.

LEGO bricks are excellent building materials that allow us to use our creativity, imagination, and observations to create sculptures.

The tips below will help you to get started and let you know how to enter our prize draw…

#LetsBuildTogether and Create a Lego Creature

Top tips:

  • Build a creature you have seen recently.
  • There is no right or wrong way to create your sculpture. Use your creativity and imagination.
  • Use bigger blocks for the body pieces to provide strength to your sculpture.

Take part in our LEGO Creature Challenge and you could win one of our Minibeast Field Kits complete with magnifying pot and ID guides. To enter, either upload a photograph of your make with the #ZoologyLive to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, remembering to tag us in your message, or email it to umzc@zoo.cam.ac.uk with the subject line Zoology Live LEGO Creature Challenge.

We will be showing some of the best makes on Saturday’s Zoology Live at 3pm, and also uploading your pictures onto our Online Community Gallery at https://museumofzoologyblog.com.

See the Zoology Live: goes digital programme here

The competition closes at midnight on Sunday 28 June. A prize draw of all entries made will then take place, and the winner of that will be contacted by the Museum.


The Museum will only use any personal data provided to inform you if you have been successful in the prize draw. They will not be shared with anyone else. For more details about how we handle your personal information and your rights under data protection legislation please see the University’s Information Compliance pages: https://www.information-compliance.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
