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!

SUPPORT THE DISCOVERY CENTER OF IDAHO

We encourage people of all ages to actively participate in activities that foster lifelong STEM learning. Educational programs like Young Discoverers and summer camps offer hands-on exploration, and we get to see adults rekindle their passion for the sciences during special events and exhibitions. And that, that spark of learning and excitement, is why we do what we do.

There are many ways that you can play a part in helping the Discovery Center of Idaho remain a viable, valued asset to our community. Donations from charitable individuals and corporate sponsors help fund special programs, new exhibits and more. Our volunteers, who give selflessly of their time and knowledge, enhance our guests' experiences. And you, the members of our community, play an important role when you purchase an admission ticket or membership. With your support, we can preserve and promote our mission.
