Step-by-step instructions plus a complete brick and parts list to build your very own GOES-R satellite model.
In order to complete this model you will need a variety of parts and bricks made by LEGO®. Here is the complete GOES-R LEGO® Parts - by brick type list and here is where you can buy any additional parts you may need. The parts lists are organized by subsystems/components that you will be building in step 3.
As you may know, the real GOES-R satellite is made of many parts, including scientific instruments to perform its mission. To begin your model, refer to the GOES-R LEGO® Parts - by brick type list and begin assembling each component of your model using these parts in the next step.
You will assemble about 14 individual pieces using the parts and bricks from your GOES-R LEGO® Parts - by brick type list. Once all your components are assembled, attach them to the main body of the satellite to complete your model. Let’s get started!
