How do online LEGO workshops work?
These online LEGO® workshops are tried and tested for museums and schools, and are great for engagement with young families in particular.
Using a digital video call service (we have used many, including Zoom and Houseparty), our workshop facilitator takes a group of children through a LEGO® building challenge with others in a safe, secure digital environment.
- Participants join our video call
- Our facilitator sets the challenge and helps participants during the workshop
- We ask participants to share their LEGO® progress to our challenges
All participants need for our activities is a small tub of LEGO® elements – roughly 5 litres or so – of mixed bricks and plates (the thinner bricks). Colour doesn’t matter at all – participants can build in whatever colours they like! We encourage engagement from parents, guardians and siblings, too.
Digital LEGO® activities
Not every family has the same amount of LEGO bricks on hand for our usual LEGO® activities, so we’ve tailored our activities for this new digital world to make them fairer – and therefore more fun! – for everyone.
Our workshop challenges include a range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) tasks as well as creative workshops with a focus on the experience of building rather than the end result.
The virtual workshops are bookable by day or half day sessions, and are available to schools, museums and other cultural venues.
Contact us for more information on our available activities.
Fun, safe online workshops for all
We aim to create a safe environment for all to enjoy building with LEGO® bricks. We have a digital event code of conduct for everyone who takes part to agree to, and strictly enforce it.
Our facilitators are all DBS (previously CRB) checked, and we enforce our own – or your venue’s code of conduct for workshops to ensure a safe, fun environment for everyone taking part.
Bricks McGee are happy to work with your venue to customise events and the experience for your own visitors. Contact us to discuss your workshops in detail.
