Building with bricks is key to the process of trying to do new things and failing... and picking up the pieces and trying something new! Failure is a fantastic teacher... as long as you can make failing fun!
All our programs are designed to inspire, entertain, and educate. And by entertain... we mean have fun!
If you have any suggestions for new workshops or if you want to volunteer at any of the workshops please do contact us!

Have you ever seen giant LEGO® brick builds? Have you wondered how they are done?
Join in with a group of other LEGO® enthusiasts to build something awesome!
Work together using negotiation and consensus to incorporate everyone’s ideas into a huge LEGO® brick creation.
Learn dreaming and brainstorming techniques to come up with creative and fun projects to build together. Plan the project and get building!
This could include machines, buildings, villages, or cities, elaborate fantasies or historical recreations.
The group will also create a time lapse stop motion video of the final build.
Why do kids want to participate in these workshops?
What do they learn?
They will feel the pride of contribution and accomplishment while stimulating social skills, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
In process photos provided throughout. Complete build photos and stop action video provided at the end of the workshop.

The final project will be displayed and available for all parents and friends to view.
