On Saturday, October 1st, 2016, we helped Supervisor Richard Valle and the Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District build the District 2 Map out of LEGO, as well as the city of Hayward out of LEGO. It was for Science In The Park, a Biennial FREE family event that makes STEM and health compelling and accessible to children, families, and the general public in Alameda County District 2.
Families were able to find where they lived in a map of District 2 and create their neighborhood out of LEGO. They also were able to build Hayward out of LEGO, as well as play with other LEGO-Inspired STEM projects. Check out the videos and pictures of the event below. If you’d like us to run a similar event for your government agency, simply complete our Special Request Form HERE.
The Corbel Arch Bridge was built twice. The first bridge was 209 Ft and built in just over an hour. The second Corbel Arch LEGO Bridge attempt reached 239 Ft and was built in 1.5 hours.
And here are pictures from the event:
On March 26th, 2016, Play-Well TEKnologies partnered with The Atlanta Science Festival to build a replica of Atlanta out of LEGO. Over 100,000 pieces of LEGO were used to build the city, which included a working Ferris Wheel and replicas of the Coca Cola and CNN building. Here is a timelapse video of the build.

We are hoping to build a 200-Foot Long LEGO bridge and we will need your help in order to do it. Come learn about various types of bridge architecture, play with LEGO, and be a part of one of the longest LEGO bridges ever made in the state of Arizona, maybe even the country. The best part about it is the event is free.
There are two separate time slots to register:
- 10 AM – 12 PM
- 12 PM – 2 PM
This event will be held at Tempe Public Library.
Feel free to share this with family and friends. Be sure to sign up fast though, as we only have so many slots available.

A few years ago, we had a dilemma we needed to solve. How do we get more girls interested in engineering and STEM related fields?
So we came up with the Girl-Powered Engineering program. Hear the stories of two young engineers who participated in this program.

On December 5th, 2016,Stanford University Brain Development Department and Play-Well TEKnologies helped families in the Palo Alto community build human spinal columns out of LEGO. The goal was to raise awareness about STEM education, as well as connect the Palo Alto community to the research being done at Stanford University. Over 500 parents and kids from Palo Alto participated in the event. As a group, they attempted to break two Guinness World Records. One of the tallest LEGO spinal column and one for the most anatomically correct spinal columns. They ended up building 86 anatomically correct LEGO spinal columns and one spinal column that was 9 Ft. 2 inches.
The San Francisco Chronicle covered the event.
