Ted Talks

TEDxWaterloo - Mathew Ho - LEGO Man in Space

What do two teenagers do with $400 and an idea? They send a LEGO Man into space. Mathew Ho tells us the story behind the mission.

Mathew Ho, a Grade 12 student at Agincourt Collegiate Institute in Toronto, Ontario, has a thing for high places. Last summer he climbed to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro and then a few months later, he and his friend Asad Muhammad became "the teens who sent a Canadian Lego man into space and videotaped it” – just for fun.

Mathew's passions are for hands-on projects that require him to build things from scratch, and the visual arts. He is a competitive hockey and lacrosse player, and says, “I have given up on trying to find my niche, and rather accepted the fact that there are just so many interesting things in this world, it would be futile to focus on just one.” This summer he plans on summiting Mt Elbrus, before heading off to university to study commerce.
