With Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day approaching, we wanted to share what we had done in the past for various companies for this special day.
We are play engineers at heart, so we love creating scenarios where kids get to experience what their parents do at work in a play setting. We have worked with companies such as Accenture, Oracle, National Building Museum, Adobe, Microsoft, and Yale School of Medicine in providing interactive LEGO workshops for their kids.
For example, a few year ago, Accenture asked us to show their children what it would be like to be a engineer consultant. We provided these future consultants an engineering dilemma, various mechanisms to figure it out, and let them break up in teams and go to work. The results were these mini-engineering consultants came up with a brand new invention. A vehicle that could traverse across three separate types of terrain, ground, rail, and air.
Many engineers brought their kids to the National Building Museum for our LEGO architecture workshop. There, we built a 21ft. tall tower with students, while showing them basic building techniques we use in our architectural projects.
