Lego event recap

October 23, 2012 2:10 PM | Anonymous member
This past Sunday the 21st the CGCC hosted its first northern region event. Held at C&A Robot Factory in Libertyville, it was a fun-filled afternoon of Legos and science. We had a great turnout, with some families traveling as long as an hour to meet up with other gifted families. The seventeen Lego builders built and programmed a drumming monkey (who doesn't love a Lego drumming monkey?), as well as built and tested a race car. The creativity and curiosity in the room was awesome to see. Photos from the event can be seen on our CGCC Facebook page.

We hope to have another Lego event at C&A Robot Factory in the spring, but there will surely be other activities and gatherings before then. If there is something you would like to see in your area, please contact one of the board members.

Many thanks to C&A Robot Factory for their help in setting up this event!

    Looking forward to the spring event as we were unable to attend this one.
