Help Us Build a 7.5 Ft. San Francisco Giants LEGO Logo at AT&T Park

On Saturday, November 7th from 10 AM – 4 PM, AT&T Park will be hosting the Bay Area Science Festival, the largest science education festival in the Bay Area.

On AT&T Field that day, we will be attempting to build a 7.5 Ft. San Francisco Giants LEGO Logo.  Here is the outline of the Giants LEGO Logo.  For scale, we have placed a 3 Ft. ruler next to the sign.  We need your help in order to complete it by the end of the science festival.  By helping us build, you can say one day that you were on the field of the SF Giants building a gigantic, LEGO Giants Logo.

In addition to helping us build this awesome, SF Giants LEGO sign, there are so many amazing science exhibits at the Bay Area Science Festival.  Here are some details directly from the Bay Area Science Website:

There will hundreds of hands-on activities, opportunities to meet local scientists and engineers, and plenty of fun and educational entertainment. The entire ballpark is packed to the rafters with science content: on the field, at every entry/exit, and every level of the ballpark. Get ready to unleash your inner scientist.”

Hope to see you there!

Play-Well Families Visit San Francisco Giants LEGO Day

The San Francisco Giants held the first ever professional sporting event LEGO Day on Saturday, September 12th, 2015.  We invited Play-Well families to come out to the event and over 100 families decided to come.  To identify them amongst the tens of thousands of people that were there, we distributed Play-Well SF Giants LEGO Bow Ties.  This was really helpful, as we were able to find them amongst the crowd.  Here are some pictures from the event.
