Brett Roberts | The Comedian for Kids

Lego Challenge

Everyone loves Legos! In this Lego Challenge, Brett leads everyone on a pirate and mermaid themed adventure. While this workshop teaches STEM curriculum, the kids will be having so much fun they won’t notice they are learning. The adventure begins with everyone “making a friend”. In other words, everyone will get to make a Lego minifigure. Then each challenge will be building things for that minifigure including a raft, a bridge, tools, etc. Brett will bring enough supplies for two hundred minifigures and thirty pounds of Legos. This workshop is designed for kids six and up.
