At VMworld 17, VMware’s largest thought leadership and education event of the year, attendees got an opportunity to not only learn, but also play. When not in sessions, attendees got the chance to build with over 70,000 pieces of LEGO, as well as create their own LEGO Minifigure to take home. Here are some of the highlights of what was created:

On Sunday, August 27th, 2017, Play-Well TEKnologies will be collaborating with the Central Library in Santa Barbara to build the city of Santa Barbara out of 40,000 LEGO® Bricks. The event is being held to honor the 100-year history of the Central Library Building in the City of Santa Barbara.
Families will get the opportunity to build the city of Santa Barbara as they would like to see it, as well as get the opportunity to answer these questions through play:
If you had the chance to design the city of Santa Barbara, how would you design it?
What else would you add to the city that you currently think is missing?
How would you make Santa Barbara even better than it is now?
The best part is that the event is FREE to the public.
We’ll have two sessions, one at 1:30 pm and one at 3:30 pm.
Here are the details of the event:

Play-Well TEKnologies teaches LEGO-Inspired STEM Programs to approximately 100,000 kids/year around the U.S. Their goal is to inspire the next generation of engineers, innovators, scientists, and inventors all through the power of play. Kids dive into our classes and exercise their innate gift for building. They come away understanding fundamental principles of engineering and physics. The experience boosts their confidence, creativity and ability to collaborate. For more information, visit play-well.org.
Do you have a Back-To-School, Movie, or STEM night coming up. We’d love to be a part of it. We have created LEGO-Inspired STEM Activities at STEM nights, PTA Carnivals, Fall Festivals, and Science Nights at schools all across the country.
We can provide a small interactive STEM experience for kids, where we offer 1 – 2 Hand-On Activities.
Or we can do a large event build, like we did for this local school:
We really enjoy these events as it allows us to give back, while also letting the community know about our organization.
For the past four years, we have participated in Adobe Systems Annual Field Trip Day for their families. It’s an amazing event where kids get to learn what their parents do for a living and also get to play with so many different types of STEM activities. We happened to be one of them. Check out what families were able to build at this year’s event.
We want to wish you a Happy 4th of July! To commemorate this, we have compiled a group of awesome LEGO builds from around the internet that celebrates the 4th of July, the United States, as well as fireworks.
On Saturday, July 1st, 2017, we collaborated with SoulPancake’s LEGO® show, BRICK X BRICK, to set a World LEGO® Record! Over 200 Families from all parts of the Los Angeles area came out to help build 1000 LEGO® “Origami” Cranes. The goal was to not only set a world record but also bring the community together through play.
