Have you ever wanted to wanted to build a LEGO city? or if you are like me maybe just play with one..or see it built? Well if you live in Indy, Chicago or Fort Wayne you will get to experience all the Awesome (had to…) that is Brickworld!
Everyone knows what a LEGO is. I mean everyone unless of course you are a hermit…or don’t live in a country where they have LEGO…or TV…or the Internet…but everyone else knows what LEGO is. Parents know what a LEGO is. They know what its like to help build, encourage creations, pick up the pieces and what its like to step on them. Don’t get me started.
What everyone doesn’t know is just how awesome (going to do that a lot…) they can really be. You can build SO much with them and the only limitation is your imagination. I love the LEGO sets of course but nothing beats a box of LEGO bricks and hours to kill.
Brickworld looks like an awesome place to discover new ideas and amazing creations. I cannot wait to go to the one in Indy (since we live here) but there is one in Chicago and Fort Wayne, IN as well. The one in Indy will be held at the (Awseome!) State Fairgrounds on Saturday March 8th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and on Sunday March 9th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Here is a little info from the site:
When asked how he would describe Brickworld events to someone that hasn’t attended, Event Organizer, Bryan Bonahoom, said “Brickworld is a place where you can go and lose yourself in the fabulous details of amazing creations that are all made from the world’s most flexible art medium – the LEGO brick.”
Brickworld displays include trains, robots, cityscapes, space stations, and much more. Bryan also added “We are energized to do the Indianapolis show every year because the LEGO fans and the entire city are so excited about the event.”
The LEGO brick is widely recognized as one of the most educational toys in the world. At Brickworld, kids of all ages can witness an incredible variety of ways to use the brick for art and engineering applications. Using the LEGO brick exercises creativity, engineering skills and hand-eye coordination.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) educational value of the brick is captured by Cummins Inc. (a Brickworld sponsor) in their interactive engine build. They use a LEGO model of their QSK-95 Hedgehog as a tool to discuss engines and engineering with kids and adults around the country.
Brickworld is also a supporter of FIRST® LEGO League, a robotics competition for junior high aged kids and we are working with the not for profit organization to include a demonstration tournament at Brickworld Indy.
This event is only held for 2 days (March 8 & 9) so you won’t want to miss it. General admission is $9 per person per day but kids under 3 are free. They even honor our active duty and reserve service members and first responders (Awesome!) with a discounted $6 ticket (You will need to show your military / first responder identification).
Tickets are available at the door and online at the Brickworld web site HERE. We will be getting our tickets this weekend! While we wait we will be in our LEGO room creating awesome (warned you) things!
