On Saturday March 10th, 2018, Play-Well TEKnologies is offering a free and kid friendly, city of Anthem LEGO® build at the Caurus Academy! Families will build the city of Anthem out of 40,000 LEGO® Bricks! Kids can construct the Adventure Playground, Daisy Mountain, their own home, school and favorite park all out of LEGO®. Students will explore hands on architecture through learning about overlapping and how buildings are so strong! All LEGO® materials will be provided by Play-Well. For safety, all kids need to bring an adult.
Families will get the opportunity to build the city of Anthem as they see it, as well as answer these questions through play:
What is your favorite part of Anthem?
How would you design your own house?
How would you make Anthem even better than it is now?
This is a FREE event for kids ages 5+. Only kids need tickets

In the midst of all the saddening news around immigration, DACA, the pending Supreme Court decision regarding the travel ban, and discussion around what it is to be an American, there is an event on the outskirts of the politically divided beltway that represents the exact opposite of these storylines. In Silver Spring, MD a community is deciding to come together by playing, despite their differences.
On Saturday, September 16th, 2017, at the Silver Spring International Middle School, recently resettled refugee families will be building the towns, villages, and cities that they recently left out of LEGO bricks. The International Rescue Committee Silver Spring has been working closely with these families as they get acquainted with their new homeland.
Later that day, the IRC Silver Spring will be inviting local families from the Silver Spring Community to meet their new neighbors and together they will build Washington D.C. out of 40,000 LEGO® pieces. The event revolves around connection, community, and play.
Date: Saturday, September 16th, 2017
