Tipping Over Our Tallest LEGO Tower Ever

Our students in Fort Collins, CO built one of our tallest LEGO Towers ever in just over an hour. It was approximately 20 ft. tall. We needed to take it apart at the end of the day, so we figured the easiest way was to tip it over. Here is what happened in slo-motion.

Playing Well with Amazon.com!

We are having so much fun today at Amazon’s Summer Picnic event at CenturyLink Field. We got our LEGO booth rocking and rolling. Never thought we’d ever be playing with LEGO at the stadium of the Super Bowl Winners, Seattle Seahawks. Feeling extremely appreciative.

Throwback Thursday: 50,000-Piece LEGO Golden Gate Bridge

For this throwback Thursday, we pulled out a picture from the 2001 Marin County Fair. Our Founder, Tim Bowen, and VP of Curriculum Development, Alex Shullman, built the North Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge out of 50,000 pieces of LEGO. Back then, they were simply known as “the LEGO dudes.”
