Back in April 9th, 2017, Play-Well TEKnologies helped families in Lawrence, KS build their city out of 50,000 LEGO® bricks. It was such a fun event that Play-Well then wanted to attempt it in a larger city, such as St. Louis, MO.
The Grant’s View Branch of St. Louis County Library helped make it a reality, as they have now partnered to build the City of St. Louis out of 50,000 LEGO Bricks on Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 11 AM – 4 PM. The event is already sold out with over 800 people expected to attend. Part of the goal of this event is to get kids excited about architecture and other STEM-related fields, especially as they go into the summer break.
Here are the details of the event:
