LEGO® Serious Play Workshop
May 18 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Saturday, May 18th | 11AM-1PM & 2PM-4PM
Free for members, free with general admission
Participants will use the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method to explore challenges that must be addressed before our 10 year olds have their own 10 year olds. In the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Method, participants are given a series of building prompts, or questions, and build models in response. These models serve as the basis for reflection and conversation.
Please note, this is NOT your typical LEGO building session. While there are no instructions provided, this is not a "free build" activity, and all attendees should be willing to build, and share, along with others.
This workshop is meant for parent(s)/guardian(s) and their children (ages 10 and up)!
11AM-1PM - Sign up HERE!
2PM-4PM - Sign up HERE!
