Rolls Royce unveiled a 1/2 size LEGO replica of its Trent 1000 Turbofan jet engine, used in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, at the Farnborough International Airshow. The company hopes it will help engage youngsters in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Gizmag reports that the complex model is made from 152,455 LEGOs and took a team of four people eight weeks to build. It was largely designed by graduates and apprentices at Rolls Royce, and was constructed by LEGO specialists Bright Bricks. The model (complete with moving parts) weighs 307 kg and measures 6.6 ft x 4.9 ft. Click through to see photos of the LEGO jet engine:
