Harry Potter Camps Bring A Little Magic to Your Summer

This year we launched a brand new summer camp offering – Harry Potter Magical Engineering. Our Arizona instructor, Jacinda, sent us an awesome little story about her experience running her first HP camp! We love awakening the inner engineering in our campers and one of the best ways to create lasting memories is to geek out together! Great job, Jacinda! Way to go the extra mile with these incredible name tags!

“I had such an awesome week with this great group of very creative & skilled builders. This was my first Harry Potter-themed camp, and we had so much fun together! The kids and their grownups were so excited when they came in the first day and found their name tags that I handmade for them in H.P. lettering! They all wanted to save them! We had some very cool Hogwarts Express trains, one student made a huge Hungarian Horntail Dragon, dragon guarded mazes with rotating staircases, and each house dormitory was filled with a variety of magical additions (such as trophy cases, blue birds, and Hufflepuff bedspreads). We had STEM Challenge in the morning, and one student turned their gondola into a flying broom! I just wanted to share all the awesomeness!”

Building The World’s Longest LEGO Bridge in Tempe

On Saturday, March 19th, Play-Well TEKnologies and the City of Tempe will collaborate with families in the community to build a replica of the Tempe Old Mill Avenue Bridge out of LEGO.

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.

Play-Well has broken a World Record in the past for the World’s Longest LEGO Chain. Check out the video below.
