Fit-a-Brick Build Zone
Exhibition Closing Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017
The Fit-a-Brick Build Zone is a hands-on space where LEGO lovers can explore their creativity and build their own creations with LEGO bricks or LEGO DUPLO blocks. Conceived by Fleet Science Center staff as a companion to The Art of the Brick exhibition, The Fit-a-Brick Build Zone will feature adult and kid-sized work stations and a display area for visitors to share their most impressive creations.
Daily challenges incorporate elements of STEAM to encourage builders to explore new feats in LEGO engineering. Preschoolers get their very own brick-building area using jumbo beginners' blocks.
Open October 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017, in the Fleet's Main Gallery.
