Press Advisory: Breaking the Record for World’s Longest LEGO Bridge with the City of Tempe

WHAT: Breaking The Record for The World’s Longest LEGO Bridge 

WHEN: March 19th 2016, 10 AM – 2 PM
WHERE: Tempe Public Library, 3500 S Rural Rd, Tempe, AZ

On March 19th, 2016, families from all over the Tempe, Mesa, and Gilbert will descend upon the Tempe Public Library to help build a 200 Ft. long LEGO, corbelled arch bridge in order to break the record for the World’s Longest LEGO Bridge!

Inspired by the cool design of the Mill Avenue Bridge in Tempe, Play-Well TEKnologies and the City of Tempe came up with this idea to introduce kids to this architectural feat while attempting to build a colossal structure that some would say is impossible! Families have an opportunity to be a part of history and get to play with LEGO at the same time.

This is a free event open to the general public.

The press contact for this event is Jennifer Gaona.  She can be reached at 602.317.7448 or at jennifer@play-well.org.

Play-Well hosted an event last Fall where they broke the World Record for the Longest LEGO Chain! Here’s a video of the event below. Hopefully, a new world record will be set on Saturday, March 19th 2016!

Play-Well also partnered with the Stanford University Brain Development Project Lab in December 2015 to break another World Record, building over 80 Spinal Columns out of LEGO.
