What is a LEGO workshop?
LEGO is a great, versatile tool to encourage engagement with a wide range of age groups, from children to adults. Its tactile nature means LEGO is the perfect ice breaker, too – people can’t help but pick LEGO bricks up and start playing.
LEGO workshops make use of this tactile appeal to participants of all ages, and can be used at venues of almost any size, and adapted to most visitor numbers.
If you would like to discuss a LEGO workshop or event with me, please do get in touch.
What can we do in a LEGO session?
LEGO workshop sessions can vary greatly in their content and pace depending on the ages of those participating, the time available, and the number of participants in each session. Just a few of the LEGO workshops Bricks McGee can offer include:
- LEGO bridge and tower building challenge workshops – how high can you build a self supporting structure with LEGO bricks?
- LEGO drag car race workshop – build the sleekest, fastest drag car with LEGO pull-back motors, and compete to travel the first down the track for glory!
- Local landmarks building – great for introducing participants to local history and architecture in a new media, these landmark workshops allow participants to build LEGO models of your town or city’s local landmarks, with the option to create a large LEGO map of your region.
- LEGO sumobots workshop – pit yourself against the other teams and dominate the sumobot arena, pushing your opponents out of the ring!
There are many other activities and themes available; please contact me to discuss how a session could work for your venue.
Previous LEGO workshop clients
I run LEGO workshops throughout the UK for a variety of organisations, including libraries and museums. Each workshop is tailored to the client’s desired learning outcomes, or to match a specific theme of a visiting exhibition, conference or corporate away day. I hold a current DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) certificate.
Below is a small sample of the LEGO workshops I’ve run, from building local landmarks to STEM-related activities and more.
