Play-Well Featured on Paris News Station

With the release of the LEGO Movie in France, a local Paris News Station visited one of our Engineering with LEGO Classes. Our awesome Paris Manager, EJ Keller, talked about what our students can accomplish with a huge amount of LEGO and what can be accomplished when you work as a team.

Want To Help This Child Fulfill His LEGO Dream?

We came across this amazing, passionate LEGO Builder, Bjarney Ludviksdottir. Bjarney is a child from Iceland. He has a dream of building a 6 meter LEGO scale model of his favorite ship, the Titanic.  Like a true engineer, he has done all of the measurements and come up with the schematics to build the ship, using a LEGO mini-figure to determine the scale.  He created a video to ask LEGO if he could build his model at their LEGO Factory in Denmark.

We can help Bjarney achieve his dream by simply watching this video, sharing it with our friends and family, and tagging #LEGO in it.  Please help us spread the word.  Thanks!

Our Solar Panel LEGO Project A Year Later

A year ago, we asked Voltaic Systems to help us build a solar panel that we could use for our engineering with LEGO projects.  We sent them this prototype:

And this is what they had to say.

“You know it is going to be a good day at work when you get a solar-powered Lego Car in the mail. The folks at Play-Well sent it to us after choosing to use our panels for this project (if you have children, check out Play-Well’s class locations for the best in LEGO-based engineering instruction). Here’s the video of the car cruising through our offices.”

A year later, we now have a few solar panel projects including this solar panel tank.  Thanks Voltaic Systems!  Solar Panel Tank

We will be offering a few green engineering camps this summer which include our solar panel projects.  For more information about our summer program, click here: http://bit.ly/2014PlayWellCamps
