Boulder Public Library’s Introduce A Child To Engineering Day

On Saturday, February 21st, we teamed up with Boulder Public Library and local residents to build the city of Boulder out of LEGO.

Over 600 people came out to help build Boulder and learn about the world of engineering using LEGO.

The city of Boulder put together a video of the event.

We also were featured on the local Colorado TV Station, Channel 9 News.

Check out the pictures from Introduce A Kid To Engineering Day below.

Before our staff had to take them apart, we took one last photo. Such a fun day. We want to thank the Boulder Public Library for having us and all the people that came out to help make this day awesome. Thanks so much!

 

It was an awesome event that we hope inspired more kids to get into STEM-related fields in the future. For everyone that came out to this event, thanks for coming.  If you’d like to run an event like this with us, visit our Special Events page for more information.
