LEGOLAND will pick three lucky New York classrooms for a virtual build session

Could your child's be one of them?


LEGOLAND New York is looking to help with those back-to-school jitters. 

Since this experience has been overwhelming for little learners, the forthcoming family attraction is planning to surprise kiddos with a cool LEGO build—a welcome addition to the school day. (And a great way to put STEM lessons to good use.) 

Three classrooms in New York State, ranging from fourth to sixth grade, will be selected for a virtual session with a professional LEGO Master Model Builder. The students will receive toy bricks and learn how to make scaled-down versions of the theme park's rides, such as the Red Dragon Coaster and the LEGO Factory Adventure. The first winner will be chosen in October. 

Speaking of rides, you'll certainly want to take a sneak peek of the highly-anticipated LEGO Factory Adventure. The New York-exclusive feature is housed in the Bricktopia section of the park and provides a "brick's eyes view" for visitors. When entering the ride, guests will magically feel minifigure size and learn how the toys are created.

We'll keep our fingers crossed that your kiddos are one of the lucky winners this fall! Until the classrooms are chosen, make sure to check out the best after-school activities for kids this year, including virtual classes, pods and more. This is a great way for them to hone their love for all-things STEM. To stay up-to-date on LEGOLAND's selections, visit its website.
