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.”

Why is it important to introduce engineering to children at a young age?

We love to introduce kids to engineering using LEGO.  We feel honored to teach over 90,000 kids a year about engineering.  So this year, as part of our Spring Raffle, we decided to ask the question:

Why do you believe it is important to introduce engineering to children at a young age?

By participating, you could win a Play-Well Engineering with LEGO Birthday Party, a custom-made LEGO Bow Tie, or a LEGO Motor Kit.  Simply follow the instructors below to enter.  We will pick a few winners at random and share all of the great answers to this question.  Sign up on Facebook here: http://bit.ly/WhyisEngineeringImportantToTeachToKids or here: Play-Well End of The School Year Giveaway.
