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:
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.

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.
