Moving our immense 43-ton Volvo A60H articulated hauler using only LEGO® Technic elements

In collaboration with our friends at LEGO Group, we tasked a team of young students to move our immense 43-ton Volvo A60H articulated hauler across 50 meters using only LEGO® Technic elements and a large dose of engineering brainpower. Were they up for the challenge?

In a demonstration of how STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) skills have the strength to accomplish almost anything, a group of 35 budding robotics engineers accepted our challenge. With just three months to devise a solution, the team had the added issue of remote communication, language barriers, time zones and a distance of 32,000 kilometers between them.

Did they succeed? Watch the nail-biting final test in action below.

THE IMPOSSIBLE 100-TON TASK

To make the challenge even harder the 43-ton Volvo A60 was loaded with a huge pile of rocks. When things seem impossible, engineering usually has the answer.
