While doing inventory, we realized that our instructor kits have too much LEGO. So, we need to get rid of thousands of LEGO pieces. If you’d like some, just comment below. One last important piece of information: APRIL FOOLS!
We recently had so much fun running our new JEDI Engineering w/LEGO program. Our instructors that are Star Wars nerds are really into teaching these programs, getting kids excited about the world of Star Wars, and answering what role engineers played in creating this world.
We ask our students, “who do you think built the X-Wing, Tie Fighter, Millenium Falcon, Death Star, Imperial Cruiser, Clone Troopers, and even the Jedi Academy? Engineers.” Then as engineers, we begin to reconstruct the world and story lines of Star Wars through our LEGO building.
Check out some pictures from a JEDI Engineering camp we recently held in Ventura County, CA.

On Sunday, October 14th, 2012, we collaborated with the Boulder JCC in Colorado for their Kids Capital Campaign “Day of Building.” Our Play-Well Design Team created a LEGO model of Boulder JCC, which was revealed to 250 of Boulder JCC’s members. Here is a picture of the LEGO Model of Boulder JCC:
With all their members, we had ice cream, built more LEGO structures, and celebrated the unveiling of the LEGO Boulder JCC. Here are pictures of the event.
If you would like us to design a LEGO Model for your organization or would like us to be a part of one of your events, feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
