Lego gets man into Singapore university

Singapore’s Straits Times has an article in its education supplement today on how a young man built a Lego 1.5m long submersible aircraft carrier, with battery-operated moving parts, and used it for his university application.

His Youtube video of the process earned him a place at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

The 10,000-piece warship took Mr Teh Jun Hao a month to build, according to this article.

The article struck a chord with the Blog, coming in the same week as a friend had forwarded this article from the UK’s Portsmouth News about the Royal Navy launching its own Lego toy Type 45 destroyer.
